Biography from Schwarz Gallery:
From London, where in 1813, he exhibited three miniature paintings at the Royal Academy, Hugh Bridport emigrated to America and established himself as a portrait and landscape painter, engraver, lithographer, architect and art teacher.

With his brother, George Bridport, 1783-1819, who was by then a respected artist, especially noted for work at the U.S. Capital, he opened in 1816 a drawing academy in Philadelphia.  His brother died three years later, and Hugh Bridport kept his residence in that city for the remainder of his life.  However, he traveled and did miniature painting on other parts of the country including Boston, Massachusetts and Troy, New York.

Exhibition venues included the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the Artists Fund Society.
