Biography from Questroyal Fine Art, LLC:
John Pope was a talented nineteenth-century painter known for his landscapes, portraits, and genre scenes.  Born to a family of farmers in Gardiner, Maine, Pope devoted himself to painting as a teenager and moved to Boston in 1836 to study art.

His early career was marked by a strong sense of exploration, as he joined the California Gold Rush in 1849 and spent the mid-1850s abroad, absorbing the art of Paris and Rome.

Pope returned to the East Coast in 1857, establishing a studio in New York City during the heyday of the Hudson River School.

He was a member of the National Academy of Design and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Brooklyn Art Association, and the Boston Art Association. His work is now in such prominent collections as the Newark Museum.

Biography from Crocker Art Museum Store:
A painter born in Gardiner, Maine on Dec. 2, 1821, John Pope was raised on a farm and went to Boston to study painting at age 15.  After joining the Gold Rush to California in 1849, he was active there until 1857.

Returning to the East, he remained briefly before continuing on to Europe for further art study in Rome and Paris.

He then established a studio in New York City where he remained until his death on Dec. 29, 1880.
