John Neagle: Philadelphia Portrait Painter
by Robert W. Torchia (au); Peter J. Parker (fr).
This catalog records an exhibition held at the Historical Soc. of PA (HSP). In 1861, John Neagle himself recorded on canvas his earliest-known association with the HSP. When he captured the appearance of 3 Plains Indians visiting Philadelphia in 1821, he was an artist functioning as a historian. The Society has collected 15 of Neagle's paintings, & its manuscript holdings on the artist were most impressively augmented in 1985 through the generosity of the Barra Foundation. Torchia has done much to restore a long-underrated painter to his proper place in American art history. In planning the exhibition upon which this catalogue is based, Torchia selected paintings & related material from 14 private & public collections in the Delaware Valley. Illustrations.
