San Francisco Panama-Pacific Exhibition 1915
Born in Princeton, Massachusetts, Edward Savage was a self-taught portraitist whose subject included George Washington.  It is possible he copied John Singleton Copley's work to learn portraiture.  In the mid-1770s, he began his career in Boston and then went to New York to paint George Washington's portrait, commissioned by Harvard University.

In 1790, John Adams commissioned him to do portraits of George and Martha Washington.  From 1791 to 1793, he studied abroad (showing 500 of 1382 characters).
