Thompson, Jerome (American painter, 1814-1886)

Note: American painter known for his rustic Comment on works: genre scenes. He opened a portrait studio in Barnstable, MA at the age of 17 and in 1835 he moved to New York. After studying in England from 1852 to 1854, he returned to New York where he achieved success with his Comment on works: genre paintings. His works are noted for the equal emphasis given to landscape and Comment on works: genre elements within the same composition. Thompson achieved national fame and personal wealth through the sale of chromolithographs of his paintings commissioned by such important print publishers as Louis Prang. Over time his style of painting became less linear and more painterly. Though he is often cited in the literature as Jerome 'B.' Thompson, the 'B.' is a misnomer, as Thompson never signed his paintings this way. Notable early works include "Apple Gathering" (1857), and "the Belated Party on Mansfield Mountain" (1858). Later works include "the Voice of the Great Spirit" (1877), one of several paintings based on Longfellow's poem the Song of Hiawatha (1855). Later in his career he also painted scenes of the American West and Indian subjects. Comment on works: genre
