Watercolored engraving of Thomas McKean (1734-1817), a lawyer from New Castle, DE who signed the Declaration of Independance and served as the second President (Governor) of Delaware in 1777. The portrait depicts a half-length view of an older man with brown eyes, a large nose, and ruddy complexion. The subject is facing sideways but is turned to face the viewer and wears a white wig with a brown bow, black coat, and white shirt that is ruffled at the front. He has a medal pinned to his left lapel and is framed by red drapery at the upper corners. The image has been cut down and mounted on cardboard and a paper insert has been installed along the bottom of the frame that reads "Thomas Mckean / Chief Justice of Pennsylvania / 1777 - 1799". This engraving was one of a series of engravings in the National Gallery of Distinguished Americans series produced by the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1933.
