Born to a Swedish family, John Hesselius became one of the leading portrait painters in the Mid-Atlantic colonies. He is noted as one of the earliest teacher of Charles Willson Peale, who later became one of America's best-known colonial artists and whom Hesselius met at Annapolis in the early 1760s.

He first studied with his father, Gustavus Hesselius, a painter of portraits and religious subjects, but it is not thought that his father had much influence on his style.
