James Peale's original portrait of Reed, a brigadier general and military secretary to General George Washington, dates from 1775-77 and is now in the collection of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Hagen was active as a painter from about 1835 to 1860 and made this copy of Peale's portrait sometime during this period.
