Born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, Joseph Badger was one of that state's earliest native-born artists who became a portrait painter. He first worked as a house painter and glazier and had no formal art training.

In 1731, he moved to Boston, and in 1740 began portraiture as a sideline which he learned by copying black and white mezzotint reproductions of the work of English painters. His portraits are three-quarter inch and usually have landscape backgrounds. He had extensive patronage, (showing 500 of 1015 characters).
