description: Lawrence Reid Yates (died 1796) was a New York merchant who had his portrait painted by Gilbert Stuart. Walter Robertson, who came to the United States at Stuart’s urging, often copied in miniature his mentor’s paintings, and this image of Yates is such a copy. The full-scale portrait hangs in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, and was painted in 1793 or 1794. A miniature of Richard Yates’s wife, by an unknown artist, is also in this collection [see 1956.1.2].
