Washington Allston
Birth: Nov. 5, 1779
Georgetown County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jul. 9, 1843
Massachusetts, USA

Artist, Poet. After studying at Harvard, Allston was admitted to the Royal Academy in London. He practiced as a painter in Europe, where he met with great success and spent time with notable individuals like Washington Irving and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. His wife died shortly after his first collection of poetry was published; a few years later, he returned to the United States and settled in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His work was exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum; it was the first exhibition dedicated to a single American artist. The neighborhood of Allston in Brighton/Boston, Massachusetts is named after him. (bio by: Midnightdreary)
