Biography   James Deveaux


Portrait painter, James Deveaux began his art education in Philadelphia under John R. Smith, Henry Inman and Thomas Sully. Around 1832, he returned to his birth place, South Carolina, and worked in Charleston, Columbia, and Camden until 1835. Thanks to the support of South Carolina art patron, Colonel Wade Hampton II, Deveaux went to Europe from 1836 to May 1838.

Following, he worked in South Carolina, Virginia, and possibly New Orleans, until September 1841. Again he traveled to Europe and attempted grand manner painting and copied old master painting for Hampton. He died in Rome on April 28, 1844 at the age of thirty-two.
