Born and raised in Kingston, New York, John Vanderlyn had the desire to be a great history painter but did portraits and landscapes including panoramas to earn a living.  He became the first American painter to study in Paris, where he had training in Neo-Classicism as espoused by Jacques-Louis David and Jean-Auguste Ingres.  It was a style of "strong line, especially in the molding of figures, somber coloration, and an adherence to antique and mythological subjects or poses." (Zellman (showing 500 of 4204 characters).

John Vanderlyn is also mentioned in these AskART essays:
