Biography John Linton Chapman
Born in Washington D.C., John Chapman became known for his luminist-style, detailed paintings of Roman ruins and landscapes. He studied with his father, John Gadsby Chapman, and a brother was artist Conrad Wise Chapman.
He spent thirty years, 1848-1878, in Rome, Italy where he went at age nine with his family, and then settled in New York City. He exhibited at the National Academy of Design 1881-1883 and the Boston Art Club in 1875 and 1882, but his exhibition record is limited, and he died in poverty.
In addition to painting, he did some illustration including "Diomed: The Life, Travels and Observations of a Dog", a book by John Sergeant Wise.
