Charles L. Elliott (1812-1868)

Charles Loring Elliott began as an itinerant portrait-painter in the Northeast. In 1839 he opened his own studio in New York City and became a great success, painting many prominent figures such as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, William Cullen Bryant, and James Fenimore Cooper. Elliott was influenced by the new art of photography and attempted to approach its realism. His unpretentious work focused on the personality of the sitter.
