Paris Pre 1900
From Cork, Ireland, Thomas Hovenden became known for narrative, anecdotal genre subjects from history, literature, and contemporary events. He was especially sympathetic to Black Americans. His style was highly realistic and reflected his determination to compete successfully with the camera.

Orphaned at age six, he was a seven-year carver's apprentice, and his master sent him to the Cork School of Design. In 1863, at age 23, he emigrated to the United States and attended the National Ac (showing 500 of 6245 characters).
