One of the heroes (par excellence) of New-York during the war of the revolution, and a patriot in opposition to oppression, active in the antecedent events. Earle of Connecticut. As early as 1775 Mr. Earle painted portraits in Connecticut. He appeared in arms at Cambridge, espousing the cause of his country. After the war he studied his art under the direction of that true friend of art, and of America, Benj. West. Mr. Earle returned and painted many of our eminent men in 1788, and after.
