"(President of the National Academy, N.Y.) b. New York City, 1816. Pupil of S.F.B. Morse, N.A., 1835-1836; later of Henry Inman; afterwards three years in Rome with Ferrero; and studied one year each in Paris and London; in the latter city in the Royal Academy and the Kensington Life Academy. " Few of our painters have exhibited greater versatility of talent or more broad and artistic sympathies. His figures generally have the roundness which characterizes several of the best Italian masters, and his tints are subdued and harmonized like many of the favorite pictures both of the roman and the Tuscan schools. - Tuckerman, Book of the Artists."
