This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is quoted from schenectadyhistory.org/:

Robert Fulton, son of Robert Morris and Mary Livingston (Fulton) Ludlow, was born June 25, 1846, in New York City.  He was educated in the schools of Claverack, New York City, and at Hudson Academy.  He was employed for a time in a bank in Wall Street, but he was not partial to a business career.  He possessed artistic talent which he developed under the best masters, including William Morgan, the famous artist of New York City.

He is a well-known portrait and landscape artist, and has done many masterpieces that have been exhibited and won commendation from connoisseurs in art.  Among his best known paintings are, Sunnyside, the home of Washington Irving as he built it.  This was exhibited at the Academy of Design in 1889.  Mt. Vernon, the home of Washington; Washington's Headquarters at Newburg; Birthplace of Robert Fulton at Lancaster, Pennsylvania; The Clermont, Fulton's first steamboat; (the latter two pictures, together with the compass used by Fulton on his first trip, were exhibited at the Maritime Exhibition at Bordeaux, France, in 1907, held in honor of Robert Fulton), and many others of high artistic value.  Among the handsome decorations of the palatial Hudson river steamboat "Robert Fulton" are six portraits of famous men, painted by Mr. Ludlow.  He is an untiring worker and entirely devoted to his art.

His home at Claverack is a fine mansion of colonial style, built by his great-grandfather, William Henry Ludlow.  It is surrounded by tall pines and fine locusts, some of them having been there long before the mansion was built.  It contains priceless relics of the ancestor whose name he bears, including the original painting of Robert Fulton.  There are also many of Fulton's paintings and sketches done while in London a student under the great artist, Benjamin West, and later while a miniature portrait artist in the same city.  Mr. Ludlow is a member of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, and other professional societies and clubs including the Columbia County Association of New York City.  He has been a member of Trinity Episcopal Church of Claverack, and since 1890 senior warden.  He is a Democrat in politics.
