Biography   Joseph Stock


A folk-art portrait painter whose name remains prominent in American art, Joseph Stock was born in Springfield, Massachusetts and lived and worked there most of his life, painting more than 900 works during his brief career. He sometimes shared a studio with photographer O.H. Cooley and may have used some of his photographs in his portraits.

At age 11, he suffered a crippling accident and several years later was encouraged by a doctor to take up painting. He studied briefly with Francis White, a pupil of Chester Harding, but was mainly self-taught. He began his career by copying popular paintings of historical figures including Napolean, but then switched to portraits, many of them from corpses, which was a common method at that time   ...  Displaying 750 of 1234 characters.
