Born and raised in Boston to impoverished parents, George Healy was one of the best-known portrait painters of the mid to late 19th century. He also did occasional genre and historical subjects. In 1855, he established a home in Chicago from which he frequently traveled to the East Coast and the South to paint portraits of leading politicians and aristocrats, completing about 100 of them a year. After the Civil War, he returned to Europe for 25 years but left at age 79 because of his disdain for the new turns of the Parisian art scene that included Impressionism.
