• Dolley Madison
    Mary E.E. Cutts
    This watercolor portrait of Dolley Madison, painted circa 1840, is attributed to Mary Estelle Elizabeth Cutts, the former First Lady's niece. Ms. Cutts authored two memoirs of her aunt, whose husband, James Madison, was president from March 4, 1809 until March 4, 1817. Mrs. Madison is most famously known for saving the portrait of George Washington from the White House before it was burned by the British during the War of 1812.
