The sitters are the four sons of the hide and leather merchant Shepherd Knapp (1795–1875) and his wife, Catherine Louisa Kumbel (1793–1872). They are, from left to right, Gideon Lee (1821–1875), Shepherd Fordyce (1832–1886), William Kumbel (1827–1877), and Peter Kumbel (1825–1871). Shepherd Fordyce Knapp appears to be no older than two, which would date the work to 1833 or 1834. All of the children would marry and Gideon Lee Knapp would later become the owner and manager of the Green Point Ferry. The portrait type, among the most complex and successful painted by Waldo and Jewett, is one informed by eighteenth-century English portraiture. Waldo studied in London between 1806 and 1809 and his exposure to portraits by Benjamin West, in whose studio he was an assistant, is evident.

Colors are vivid and luminous in the highest definition, the details are crisp, and you can notice a matte appearance of the art print surface.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The Artprinta poster is a UV printed flat canvas with a fine surface texture. It is particularly suited for framing your art replica with the help of a customized frame. Please note, that depending on the absolute size of the poster we add a white margin of approximately 2-6cm around the print, which facilitates the framing with your custom frame.
  • Canvas print: A canvas direct print is a printed canvas stretched on a wood frame. It makes the plastic effect of three-dimensionality. Furthermore, a printed canvas produces a cosy and warm look. The advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, which means that it is quite simple to hang up the Canvas print without any wall-mounts. That is why, a canvas print is suited for all types of walls.
