This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in East Haven, Connecticut, Reuben Moulthrop became a prominent portrait painters and sculptors in New England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He preferred to do modeling in wax, and among his sculpted subjects were George Washington, and John Adams.

He also did portraits of many prominent residents of the greater New Haven area as well as Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania. He began by making wax portraits, ultimately owning a waxworks museum. His training in wax is evident in his portraits in the plastic appearance of musculature and skeletal details. He portrayed men in their public persona and women in their domestic lives. His portraits had brown-grey backgrounds, and he paid close attention to texture and physical details of clothing. He is considered a major influence on portrait painters Ammi Phillips and Samuel Broadbent.

His earliest portraits were done about 1788, and likely influenced by Winthrop Chandler, they had heavy dark outlines around the subject and nothing in the background. He seldom signed his work, and his style ranged from amateur to professional, so it is difficult for experts to authenticate his work. About 45 paintings have been documented.
