Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

From England where he spent most of his painting career, Thomas Buttersworth, Sr. was known for his marine watercolor and oil paintings and charcoal drawings, especially battle scenes.  He was a mariner himself, which meant that many of his depictions were based on first-hand observations.  Examples include Inshore Squadron off Cadiz (1797), which is in the National Maritime Museum in London.

In 1795, Buttersworth was assigned to the ship Enterprise in Lond (showing 500 of 1253 characters).
