Biography Lorenzo Somerby
Born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, he became a landscape painter who copied work by William H Bartlett that appeared in a volume called "American Scenery." This book, much copied, inspired a number of landscape painters.
He was the youngest of three brothers, all whom became painters, and nothing is known of his early training. In 1834, the family moved to Boston, and he advertised himself as a sign painter. His studio during the 1860s was at 5 Bromfield and 40 School Street in the heart of Boston's commercial district.
