Biography   John Irving

A native of Charleston, South Carolina, John Irving began as an amateur portraitist in Charleston, and then after studying in Germany with Emanuel Leutze at the Dusseldorf Academy, returned to Charleston where he did more sophisticated portraiture.

However the Civil War interfered with his career, and when it was over, he moved to New York City where he had a studio in the Tenth Street Studios and painted several aristocrat portraits including John Jacob Astor. However, his main interest was historical genre, a pursuit influenced by the French painter, Jean-Louis Meissonier.
