Biography  
John Bradley


Portrait painter John Bradley was born in England, although the dates of birth and death are not well founded. Immigration documents suggest he may have been the John Bradley of unlisted profession who arrived from Ireland in August 1826 on the ship "Carolina Ann".

He was active in the New York City environs from 1832 to 1847, with the first painting that definitely places him in the United States being an 1832 portrait representing the New York merchant Asher Androvette. This and other of his portraits of the mid 1830s depict residents of Staten Island, which was then known as Richmond Island. New York City directories list him as a portrait and miniature painter working in an area that would now include Houston Street.
