Half-Length Portrait of Captain John Gerrish
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Raised in Edinburgh, Scotland, John Smibert settled in Boston and became one of the foremost portrait artists in colonial America.  His style was that of the Old Masters, and he painted nearly 300 portraits.  In his later years, with weakened eyesight, he turned to portrait painting.

He worked first as a coach painter and house painter in London and then as a copyist. He learned to draw from being a copyist and at Sir James Thornhill's Academy, and he became a moderately success (showing 500 of 2058 characters).
