John Randolph (of Roanoke)

John Randolph of Roanoke, who served in the U.S. House of Representatives for various terms between 1799 and 1833, in the U.S. Senate from 1825 to 1827, and as the minister to Russia in 1830, sits for a portrait by Joseph Wood in the early nineteenth century. This canvas measures thirty by twenty-four inches, a relatively large painting by Wood, who specialized in miniature and small cabinet paintings.
