John Bard was active/lived in New York.  John Bard is known for ship painting-collaboration with his brother James Bard.

Biography   John Bard


Born in New York City, he and his brother James Bard together painted more than 350 marine portraits, steamships and sailboats in the New York Harbor and on the Hudson River. Likely James did the outline sketches, and John filled in the color and backgrounds. However, James quit working with John after 1849, and John died seven years later.

Although the paintings they did together are rather primitive in their flat colors and perspective, the work is important to marine historians because of the accuracy and detail of the depictions. Usually the ships are placed against a generic background, and if figures are present, they are stiff and primarily serve the purpose of showing the size of the ship.   ...  Displaying 714 of 1718 characters.
