Middlesex County
Massachusetts, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1836
Albany
Albany County
New York, USA

Artist. He was born in Massachusetts but moved with his family to Staatsburg, New York when he was a young child. He returned to Massachusetts settling in Worcester where he was a successful furniture and carriage painter. It was here that he began to experiment with painting portraits, specializing in miniatures. In 1795 he moved to Albany, New York where he opened a sign painting and portrait painting business. His enterprise rapidly grew and he soon became known as one of the nation's most talented portrait painters. During his thirty year career he painted more than five hundred works of art. Many of his portraits were of New York politicians including Vice President George Clinton and Governor Dewitt Clinton . He also painted famous portraits of Gouverneur Morris and George Washington (after Gilbert Stuart). (bio by: Bigwoo)
