Catherine Brass Yates is an oil on canvas painting undertaken in 1793–94 by the American artist Gilbert Stuart.[1]


The painting shows Catherine Brass Yates, the wife of Richard Yates, a New York merchant;[2] it was painted in oil on canvas in 1793–94.[1] Stuart painted a portrait of Richard in the same period.[3] Timothy Cahill, the editor of Art Conservator magazine considers that the Portrait of Mrs Richard Yates is "regarded as among the finest American portraits ever made".[4]

The painting was acquired in 1940 by the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.[5] The gallery consider that Stuart's painting is "one of his most compelling and unified efforts at conveying character",[2] and "one of America's most famous paintings, both as an artistic masterpiece and as a visual symbol of the early republic's rectitude".[1]
