Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The earliest recorded professional artist in Virginia, Charles Bridges was working in the studio of Sir Godfrey Kneller in London when Colonel William Byrd of Virginia discovered him. It may have been Byrd who persuaded Bridges to come to Virginia in 1735. Byrd's family of Westover plantation and other members of plantation families along the James River became the subject of Bridges's best known work.

When Charles Bridges came to Virginia, he had the intentions of gaining portrait commi (showing 500 of 1666 characters).
