Biography   John Drury


John H. Drury, a noted early Chicago artist who was for many years in the forefront of Illinois art, was born in Washington, D.C., on June 30, 1816.  He was the first of seven children born to Samuel and Mary (Nolan) Drury.  His father was, for many years, a justice of the peace in high standing.  After being educated in the district schools of his native city, John Drury went into the dry goods business, and then for several years was in the Post Office Department at Washington.

At an early age, he displayed a strong artistic talent and was never without his pencil or brush. His first regular lessons were taken from Thomas Doughty, at that time one of the best-known landscape artists in the country.    ...  Displaying 750 of 2955 characters.
