Oil on Canvas, inscribed: "George Southward, Salem"

Provenance: The American painter George Southward (1803-1876)

15.25" x 13.25"
Painting: 12.25" x 10.5"

George Southward was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and spent most of his adult life there. As a young man he was a partner in the firm Kimball & Southward, a boot and shoe shop in Salem where, around 1838, he allegedly exhibited his first painting in the store window. Southward studied art in Boston with the portrait painter Joseph Alexander Ames (1816-72), accompanying him on a visit to Rome in 1848. He eventually established his own studio on Central Street in Salem, where he produced portraits, miniatures, landscapes, and still-lifes.
