The American Asher Brown Durand was a brilliant engraver with a late discovered passion for painting. The artist, who was born in 1796 in New Jersey in the United States, came from a French Huguenot family. As a young man, Durand trained with his father John Durand. His father was a watchmaker. Later, the 17-year-old switched to the engraver Peter Maverick, who taught him the fine arts of copperplate engraving. The youngster showed such great talent combined with diligence that he became Maverick's business partner only five years later. Nevertheless Durand insisted on attending the American Academy of Fine Arts to study fine art. John Trumbull was so enthusiastic about his student that he commissioned him to paint a painting. Durand's painting "The Declaration of Independence" triggered strong feelings of jealousy in his former teacher Maverick, who even felt compelled to dissolve the business partnership. After an initial shock, Durand benefited from this. He started his own business and quickly became America's most successful engraver. During his long career as an engraver Durand engraved countless portraits and book illustrations.

At the age of 38 Durand was tired of engraving and gave up his business. Although he had only painted occasionally before, he wanted to devote himself completely to painting at good luck. The wealthy New York collector Luman Reed was the first prominent client to give him a lucrative commission: he wanted portraits of the early American presidents. A few years later Durand travelled to Europe. As a painter he now wanted to get to know the important works of the Dutch masters of the 17th century and the paintings of Salvator Rosa and Claude Lorrain. Back in his homeland, Durand became president of the National Academy of Design in New York and held this office until he resigned in 1862.

Since Durand was an engraver for a long time of his life, his first paintings are of hard texture. The details are worked out with meticulous accuracy. The colours still look pale. In his later works, however, he found a freer style and developed a love for juicy tones. In his well-known allegories of humanity "The Morning of Life" and "The Evening of Life" he depicted imaginary landscapes in a rich and varied way. He often painted his pictures outdoors. His landscape paintings are fresh interpretations of nature. © Meisterdrucke
