Eastman Johnson (American, 1824-1906)


Also known as:  Johnson, Jonathan-Eastman

Birth Place: Lovell (Oxford county, Maine, United States)

One of the most successful artists of the Civil War era, Maine native Eastman Johnson specialized in genre paintings of motley subjects, including rural children at play, Union soldiers at the front and African-American families in the South, Nantucket cranberry pickers, and women in intimate interiors. As the son of Maine's Secretary of State, Johnson traveled often as a youth and was able to work in a lithography shop in Boston before his family moved to Washington, D.C., where he drew crayon portraits of politicians and diplomats at the U.S. Capitol. To complete his professional training, Johnson studied in Dusseldorf, Rome, Paris, and The Hague, ultimately settling in New York City and becoming a member of the National Academy of Design.
