Ammi Phillips was born in Colebrook, Connecticut and began painting portraits of western Massachusetts subjects in about 1811.  In 1813 he married Laura Brockway of Schodack, New York, and briefly lived in Troy before settling in Rhinebeck, in Dutchess County. While there, Phillips painted likenesses on both sides of the New York/New England border.  These "Border Period'' portraits, executed in pastel shades from 1812 through 1819, feature sitters with gangly arms, glancing side (showing 500 of 1824 characters).
