Brispot, Henri (1846-1928) View 1 Item
A typically Academic painter, albeit with a better sense of humor than most, Henri Brispot focused on genre paintings poking gentle fun at human foibles and either showing the upper middle class, to which he belonged, occupying itself with frivolous pastimes including card games, shopping at the open air book stalls along the Seine, or showing up the pretensions of the peasantry: as an 1897 review in The New York Times describes: M.H. Brispot will poke fun at provincial France . . . In front...

Burt, Benjamin (1729-1805)
Benjamin Burt (1729-1805, lived to the ripe old age of 76, producing work over a 50-55 year span of time. Like the second Paul Revere, Benjamin was a patriot; he fought at the Battle of Lexington. And also like Revere, he became a prominent and wealthy Boston businessman, prosperous enough to have the renowned John Singleton Copley paint his portrait and to leave his family an estate valued at over $5,000.

Burt, John (1691-1745)
One of the most diligent makers of church silver in early New England, John Burt is believed to have been trained as a silversmith by John Coney. He was married to Abigail Cheever in 1714. Burt's civic activities included service at various times as constable, tithingman, and clerk for the market. Among his numerous children, three sons, Samuel (1724-54), William (1726-52), and Benjamin (1729-1805), were silversmiths, having learned the trade from their father. Two of them Samuel and Benjamin, are represented in this...

Burt, Samuel
Of the three sons by John and Abigail Burt who became silversmiths, Samuel was the eldest, but he had the shortest career of them all. Very little is known of Samuel's life except that he was married twice, first to Elizabeth White in 1747, and then to Elizabeth Kent of Newbury, Massachusetts, 1749.

Camoin, Charles (1879-1965) View 1 Item
While enrolled in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Charles Camoin met fellow students Henri Matisse and Albert Marquet; the three of them, along with Georges Roualt, Henri Manguin, Andre Derain, and Maurice de Vlaminck, formed the group of artists christened the Fauves ("wild beasts") for their "wild" expressionistic use of color and refusal to conform to the standards of the Paris Salon. The Fauves used both bold lines and flat planes, but emphasized color above all else, choosing it to express emotional...
