Biography   Richard Brunton


Known to have created an engraving of George Washington in 1781, Richard Brunton is believed to have been a deserter from the British army during the Revolution. Perhaps his most significant folk portrait is that of Mrs. Reuben Humphreys, c. 1800. This portrait is memorable for its stark portrayal of a sober looking sitter holding a rigidly executed baby.

Brunton is also known as an engraver of silver, bookplates and textile printing. He was arrested and served jail time several times for counterfeiting. He died in the Groton Poor House on September 8, 1832.
