The designation "Schuyler Limner" or "Schuyler Painter" can be applied to the anonymous maker, active circa 1717 to circa 1725, of some two dozen early eighteenth-century portraits of subjects from the Albany, New York, area. The name is derived from what appears to be the earliest and most ambitious effort by the artist, the full-length portrait of Colonel Pieter Schuyler (c. 1717), which hangs in the Albany City Hall. Portraits by The Schuyler Limner are usually three-quarter length and distinguished by strong contrasts of light and dark.
