Born on a farm in Setauket, Long Island, William Mount became what art historian Matthew Baigell described as the "foremost American genre painter."  When other artists were trying to copy European academic subjects of history, religion, and literature, he stayed in America and focused on the daily lives of East Coast people.

Many of his paintings expressed moralistic and political views, and he was also the first major American artists to portray black people with dignity al (showing 500 of 7459 characters).
