John Singleton Copley (1738-1815)


John Singleton Copley is considered to be the foremost artist of colonial America. He is also one of its most prolific. Copley was born on July 3, 1738, in Boston, and was trained by his stepfather, a mezzotint engraver. Copley's early work shows the influence of the Boston painter John Smibert and of English rococo portraitists. From the latter he learned the device of the portrait d'apparat, in which artifacts used by the subject are included in the portrait, as in Paul Revere (1768?, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston), an intense likeness of the patriot-silversmith holding one of his silver teapots. By 1760 Copley's distinctive style had crystallized, characterized by meticulous technique, clear verisimilitude, and a vivid, balanced palette. His sitters included famous politicians (John Hancock, 1765, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston) and wealthy New Englanders (Mrs. Sylvanus Bourne, 1766, Metropolitan Museum, New York City).
