This biography from the Archives of AskART:
It was not until 1867 that Newbold Trotter turned to painting as a full time occupation. He had been in business in Philadelphia and served in the Germantown Home Guards during the Civil War.

He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts from 1858 to 1887 and at the National Academy of Design and the Boston Athenaeum as well.

Newbold Hough Trotter is believed to have traveled in the western plains, California, and took a trip to North Africa.

Biography from Newman Galleries:
Newbold H. Trotter was born in Philadelphia, in 1827.  After attending Haverford College from 1841 to 1845, he worked for the wholesale dry goods firm of Wood, Abbott, and Company.  Later, he became a partner in the machinist company Birkinbine, Martin, and Trotter.

Trotter began to pursue his interest in art while still involved in business. He may have attended the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 1854.  In 1858, he exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy for the first time and later became a member there.  He was also a member of the Art Club of Philadelphia, Artists’ Fund Society of Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia Society of Artists. 

During his life he also exhibited at the National Academy of Design in New York City, and the Boston Athenaeum.

Trotter painted mainly landscapes and animal subjects.  General William Tecumseh Sherman purchased his painting, Wounded Buffaloes Pursued by Prairie Wolves for Army Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Due to his interest in natural history, Trotter received a commission to illustrate Hayden’s Journal of the Mammals of North America.  He completed thirty paintings for the book before the project was canceled due to lack of funding.

The artist died in 1898.
