Charles L. Elliott (1812-1868)
Charles Loring Elliott, best known for his portraits and illustrations, began as an itinerant portrait-painter in the Northeast of the U.S. In 1839 he opened his own studio in New York City and painted 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 work focused on the personality of the sitter.
