Biography   Isaac Sheffield


Born in Guilford, Connecticut, little is known about Isaac Sheffield except that he was an itinerant Connecticut painter who worked in the 1830s and early 1840s and who left a substantial body of easily recognizable work.

According to the website of The National Gallery, Smithsonian, Sheffield's "usual subjects, painted during the 1830s and early 1840s, were sea captains and their families from the bustling Connecticut port of New London and nearby towns. The artist's father, Captain Isaac Sheffield, was a shipmaster who advertised his services in Stonington, New London, and Sag Harbor newspapers and was also listed in some New York city directories, although he kept his residence in New London with his wife, Betsy Sizer."
