G. Stuart Newton. Mr. Newton was the nephew of Gilbert C. Stuart, and born at Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1795. He was brought, when a child, by his mother to Charlestown, Mass., and studied with his uncle before going to Europe. He became acquainted with Leslie in Paris on his return from Italy to London; a friendship commenced, which only death terminated. His eye for colour was exquisite, and his compositions are sought with avidity and thought invaluable. The character of Mr. Newton, for wit and humour, partook of the relationship to his uncle, as may be seen by the letters of R.C. Leslie and W. Irving. (See Hist. of Arts of Des.) [Pp. 15-16.]
