Joseph Lee (1827-1880)

He was born in England in 1827, came to San Francisco in 1858 and was listed in the city directory as a sign painter.  Little is known of his art training; he may have been been self-taught.  He first gained public notice in 1858 at the second Mechanics' Institute Fair where he won a bronze medal for tin signs.  From the painting of signs, he developed into an easel painter of scenes that were rendered in minute detail.  Captains often hired Lee (showing 500 of 1972 characters).
