About

John Smibert Colonial America's first portrait artist by Richard H. Saunders. New Haven: Yale University Press, 1995. First edition hardcover with dust jacket and slip case. 280 pp. A book on America's first portrait artist. John Smibert (1688-1751) was the first painter of distinction to attempt to carve out an existence in colonial America. He was born in Scotland and began his career painting London Society. In 1728 he moved to America with the hopes of becoming a professor of the arts, finally settling in Boston. The book is both a catalogue of his work and a discussion of his life and career.
