An example of work by John Mare

A Colonial artist, John Mare left only thirteen paintings that have been documented, although it is said he painted about 20 canvases. His painting of John Keteltas with a fly sitting on the cuff of the subject is likely the first "trompe l'oeil" (fool the eye) painting in America.

Nothing is known of his art training. From 1759 to 1778, he was active in Albany, New York, and between 1769 and 1771, he was in Montreal, Canada where he painted a portrait, of Rene-Ovide Hertel de Rouville, (showing 500 of 1561 characters).
