A portrait painter who came from Sweden, Gustavus Hesselius was highly prominent in the Middle Colonies and in Philadelphia, where he was one of the first professional portraitists. He was also unique in that unlike most portrait painters of that era, he also did other subjects including religious, narrative and classical themes as well as coach and other decorative work.

His painting technique is not considered particularly strong by some art historians, but is valued as historically im (showing 500 of 2198 characters).
