This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Thomas James Scott (1824-1888)

He was born in Tullytown, Pennsylvania, in 1824.  His family relocated to Philadelphia where Scott attended Central High School, having as his Graphics Professor, Rembrandt Peale.  He attended and graduated with a degree in Pharmacy at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1846.  He worked as a druggist in Philadelphia for a few years, but was in Kentucky painting horses by 1856.  He studied with Edward Troye, both painting the famous sire Lexington for his owner R.A. Alexander of Woodburn Farm the very same year, 1857.  Scott painted horses for the most important early turfmen in Kentucky including Dr. Elisha Warfield, John M. Clay, James Grinstead, and Major B.G. Thomas.

The Civil War interrupted Scott's animal painting pursuit and he served as Hospital Steward the entire war with the 21st Infantry Regiment Union.  After the war he resumed his painting but also became a writer/correspondent for the sporting journal, Turf, Field, and Farm.  He wrote articles ranging from breeding practices to the care of horses under the pen name "Prog."  He was a highly respected authority on the conformation of a horse and was listened to by the top turfmen across the country.
Scott married Mary E. Furman from Patchogue, Long Island on April 1, 1871.  They had four children, only one daughter, Eliza, surviving to adulthood.  Thomas J. Scott died in Lexington, Kentucky, at the age of sixty-four years.  He is buried alongside other Civil War soldiers in the Lexington Cemetery.
