    Along with his friend and some-time rival L Benjamin West, John Singleton Copley was the first native-born American painter to achieve fame at home and abroad. Born on Boston's Long Wharf, Copley was instructed in art by his stepfather Peter Pelham, a mezzotint engraver and portrait painter. Copley also learned from the paintings of Joseph Blackburn and Robert Feke, but he was, to an extraordinary degree, self-taught. Like West, Copley aspired from the start to be a history painter, but was forced to find his principal livelihood in portraits. Copley's likenesses perfected a style that gave special attention to technical dexterity in surfaces-the sparkling sheen of fabric and the detailed reflections of polished furniture, rendered with strong chiaroscuro-yet still probed the inner personalities of the prosperous sitters who commissioned them. Emboldened by the favorable reception in England of Boy with a Squirrel private collection) and by the encouraging words of West, Copley sailed on June 10, 1774

    The Art Institute Purchase Fund, 1947.28 Despite the great influence of European styles, American art has expressed since the founding of the colonies indigenous sensibilities and materials. Largely self-taught, Bostonian John Singleton Copley often relied, like English artists, on European prints for compositional models. In fact, the pose, gown, drapery, and billowing cloud in the background of Mrs. Daniel Hubbard were inspired by a mezzotint portrait of an English noblewoman. Achieving a balance between honesty and sophistication, Copley created convincing images of 18th-century Americans that continue to move us through their incisive characterization and vigorous execution.

    John Singleton Copley
    Painted in London, this image is one of only four self-portraits by John Singleton Copley, who is admired today for his realistic depictions of colonial American sitters. His ambition to study painting in Europe, coupled with the increasingly violent events that led to the American Revolution, made him leave Boston for England and Italy in 1774. He spent the second half of his life in London, where he painted several important history paintings, including Watson and the Shark (1778), as well as portraits. As Copley began to paint larger works, he adjusted his meticulous colonial style to a looser, broader technique, in keeping with British fashion in the 1780s. The pose, strong highlighting, and contrasting shadows of this self-portrait are an example of this new manner.

    10. Artist Biography: John Singleton Copley
    John Singleton Copley. return to Artists List. John Singleton Copley (1738–1815)is an artist with few peers in the history of eighteenth century American art.
    John Singleton Copley
    In America at this time, there were, of course, limners, printmakers, wood carvers, japanners, and others engaged in various forms of artistic work. John Smibert and John Greenwood were two prominent practitioners, both of whom had a virtual monopoly on the New England portrait market. The young and eager New Englander learned a good deal from both but, in less time than anyone could have predicted, went on to surpass them.
    Despite his success, and as much as he struggled to overcome the limitations of his American colonial environment, Copley dreamed of the unseen world that lay on the European side of the Atlantic. He resolved that he would one day make the grand tour to inspect master paintings firsthand. He also longed to move from portraiture into the field of historical painting, then considered a higher form of artistic expression. Until he could do this, he was busy enough with portrait commissions in various American households, and with the painstaking preparation of a book of anatomical drawings based on two European anatomy books. These show his strength as a draftsman and his determination to rise to the top of his profession. He kept the book with him as a guide throughout his career.
    Eventually, revolutionary rumblings interrupted Copley's career in New England. In his view, politics and art did not mix: indeed, he was convinced that politicking was to the artist's disadvantage. Interestingly enough, his sitters in America at this time constituted a mixed following of radicals and high Tories. Thomas Gage and John Wentworth were two of the many Tories he painted, while the flaming revolutionaries Paul Revere and Samuel Adams sat for him as well. When we consider the 1770s were years of volatile politics, we must admire Copley's aplomb. In the artist's correspondence about America's moves toward independence, there are some pacifist undertones, but he was firmly decided on going abroad. He left the colonies in 1774. The pursuit of his art was the overriding concern.

    Copley, John Singleton
    Copley, John Singleton (b. July 3, 1738, Boston [Mass., U.S.]d. Sept. 9, 1815, London, Eng.) Generally considered the finest painter of colonial America, John Singleton Copley painted portraits and historical subjects. His Boston portraits show a thorough knowledge of his New England models, and his talent as a draftsman and colorist produced pictures of aristocratic elegance and grace (emigrated to London in 1775). Copley was born on July 3, 1738, in Boston, Mass., to immigrants recently arrived from Ireland. He began to paint in about 1753. His earliest works show the influence of his stepfather, an engraver, and the Boston artist John Smibert. In about 1755 Copley met the English artist Joseph Blackburn, whose use of rococo lightness and coloring he quickly adopted. He also made use of the rococo device called portrait d'apparatportraying the subject with objects associated with his daily lifethat gave his work a distinction not usually found in 18th-century American painting. Eager to expand his reputation beyond New England, Copley sent his

    Mrs. Thomas Gage
    Oil on canvas
    50 x 40 in. In 1771, Copley left his native Boston for a six-month stay in New York, where he accepted numerous portrait commissions. His first subject was Margaret Kemble Gage, the American-born wife of General Thomas Gage, commander-in-chief of the British forces in North America (who had sat for a portrait by the artist in 1768). Mrs. Gage wears a turbanlike swath of drapery, a silk caftan over a lace-trimmed chemise, and an embroidered belt - a Turkish-style costume that enhances her languid pose. Such clothing was fashionable at British fancy dress balls, but since masquerade balls were not held at the time in New York, Mrs. Gage would have had no occasion to wear the costume outside the studio. Her faraway gaze suggests pensive thought and intellectuality, implying that she was not preoccupied with trivial matters. This is the first painting in which Copley depicted a woman in such exotic clothing or in such a state of melancholic reverie.

    John Singleton Copley, the foremost artist in colonial America, was virtually self-taught as a portraitist. By meticulously recording details, he created powerful characterizations of his Boston sitters. After he emigrated to London in 1774, Copley began to specialize in narrative scenes from history and joined the influential artistic institution, the Royal Academy of Art. Copley demonstrated a genius, in both his American and British periods, for rendering surface textures and capturing emotional immediacy.

The only work published by Copernicus on his own initiative was a Latin version of the Greek Epistles of Theophylact (Cracow, 1509). His treatise De monetae cudendae ratione, 1526 (first printed in 1816), written by order of King Sigismund I., is an exposition of the principles on which it was proposed to reform the currency of the Prussian provinces of Poland. It advocates unity of the monetary system throughout the entire state, with strict integrity in the quality •of the coin, and the charge of a seigniorage sufficient to cover the expenses of mintage. by C. L. Menzzer in 1879. (A. M. C.) William Copland, the printer, supposed to have been his brother, published three editions of Howleglas, perhaps by Robert, which in any case represent the earliest English version of Till Eulenspiegel. The Knyght of the Swanne was reprinted in Thom’s Early Prose Romances, vol. iii., and by the Grolier Club (1901); the Hye Way in W. C.
