Biography Lucien Powell
LUCIEN WHITING POWELL (1846-1930)
Lucien Whiting Powell was born at Levinworth Manor in Upperville, Virginia, a 10,000 acre estate granted around 1770 by the British Crown to his ancestors. The son of a distinguished Virginia family, he was raised on 322 acres of the original tract (Cutler, p. 2) and educated in the district schools and under private tutors. Interested in art at an early age, Powell later recalled: "From childhood I could always draw. I used to make pencil sketches that had real character. It was not until later that I had any paints to work with. Perhaps it was because I did not have colors at my disposal in the beginning that I used them so enthusiastically after I obtained them" (Porter, n.p.).
