The pupil and friend of Johnson, and leader of the drama, as actor and author. Robt. Edge Pine. This gentleman distinguished himself as an historical painter in his native country, England, before coming to the U.S., in 1783, for the purpose of recording on canvass the statesmen, heroes, and events of the revolution. He took up his abode in Philadelphia, where he painted the celebrated Francis Hopkinson, and many others. With a letter from Hopkinson, he proceeded to Mount Vernon, where he painted the portrait of Washington, now in the possession of Henry Brevoort, Jr., Esq. Mr. Pine's historical pictures, brought to America, were all destroyed in the conflagration of Bowen's Museum, in Boston. (See Hist. of Arts of Des.) [P. 15.]
