19th Century Oil on Canvas Farm Scene by John O'brien Inman
SHP054
Oil on canvas painting of a bucolic farm with small pond. John O’Brien Inman (1828-1896). Portraitist and genre painter John O'Brien Inman was the son of painter Henry Inman. Born in 1828 in New York City, Inman studied under his father, who painted landscapes and miniatures, as well as portraits and genre scenes. By 1853, the younger Inman was exhibiting at the National Academy of Design. In his youth, he worked as a portrait painter in the South and West; later he moved his studio to New York City, where he specialized in small genre pieces and flower paintings. Like many artists of the time Inman traveled widely. Before it became a popular destination for artists, Inman was in the Adirondacks where he painted several successful landscapes. In 1854 he spent time in Savannah and Athens, Georgia where he attempted to attract potential clients through advertisements and an agent. Inman was elected an associate of the National Academy of Design in 1865. Inman died in Fordham, NY in 1896. Signed lower right.
