Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Elliott, Charles Loring, 1812-1868 (search)
Elliott, Charles Loring, 1812-1868 Painter; born in Scipio, N. Y., in December, 1812; was the son of an architect, who prepared him for that profession. He became a pupil of Trumbull, in New York, and afterwards of Quidor, a painter of fancy-pieces. Having acquired the technicalities of the art, his chief employment for a time was copying engravings in oil, and afterwards he attempted portraits. He practised portrait-painting in the interior of New York for about ten years, when he went to the city (1845), where he soon rose to the head of his profession as a portrait-painter. It is said that he painted 700 portraits, many of them of distinguished men. His likenesses were always remarkable for fidelity, and for beauty and vigor of coloring. He died in Albany, Aug. 25, 1868.
