Eastman Johnson (1824-1906)

Artist Eastman Johnson was known for his portraits, genre-figures, and landscapes. In 1845 he drafted sketches of John Quincy Adams and Dolly Madison. A year later Hawthorne, Emerson, and Longfellow sat for him. A genre painting entitled "Old Kentucky Home - Life in the South" (1859), assured his fame. Johnson worked in subjects that appealed to the sentimentality of his day. He was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
