Pierre Bacot, ca. 1708–10 Henrietta Johnston (American, ca. 1674–1729) Pastel, red and black chalk on off-white laid paper 11 5/8 x 9 in. (29.5 x 24.1 cm) Gift of Mrs. J. Insley Blair, 1947 (47.103.24) This pastel was among the first that Johnston executed in Charleston, South Carolina, just following her arrival there with her husband from Dublin in 1708. The artist rendered the facial features with precision and blended colors, particularly in the hair, as she had done in Ireland. Pierre Bacot, also called Peter Bacot, was born in Tours, France, in 1684 and was brought by his family to South Carolina as an infant. After his father's death in 1702, Bacot moved to Goose Creek, where he bought and sold land for a living
