Gilbert C. Stuart. This great American portrait painter was born in 1754, and long a favourite pupil of Mr. West. Mr. Stuart was a native of Newport, Rhode Island, and on his return to America in 1793, he painted in New-York, from whence he removed to Germantown and Washington, finishing a life of labour and eccentricity at Boston, in the year 1833. The versatility of this gentleman's talents was unbounded, his wit and conversational powers almost unexampled. His life was a romance of reality. (See Hist. of Arts of Des.) [P. 9.]
