Biography from National Portrait Gallery:
Thomas Edgar Stephens was born 1886 in Cardiff, South Wales, and died 1966 in New York City.  He studied first at the Art School of Cardiff University, then at the Heatherly School in London, and then later at the Julian Academy in Paris.

He moved to the United States in 1929 and was later naturalized.  After giving a lecture to the Art Club of the United States Military Academy in 1950, he was commissioned by the Academy to paint the portraits of the Army's foremost generals of World War II.

Later, he would go on to paint the images of President and Mrs. Eisenhower for the White House as well as many portraits of the Eisenhower cabinet secretaries.  Stephens was most proud of the fact that he convinced President Eisenhower to begin painting as a hobby. Also, Thomas Stephens executed the final portrait of Winston Churchill painted from life.

Institutions displaying his works include the White House, the United States Military Academy at West Point, The Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, and the Union League Club of New York.
