Eastman Johnson (1824-1906)

Eastman Johnson was an artist 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. Johnson went to Europe for three years to study oil-painting. A genre painting, "Old Kentucky Home - Life in the South" (1859), assured his fame. In New York, Johnson worked in subjects that appealed to the sentimentality of his period. He was one of the founders of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is a signed carted de visite.
