Eastman Johnson is best known to the world as co-founder of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art. Often referred to simply as "the Met", it is the largest art museum in the USA and the third largest in the world behind the Louvre in Paris and the National Museum of China in Beijing.

Hardly anyone in Johnson's youth expected him to become a patron of the arts. The son of a civil servant and a housewife, he was born in 1824 on the US East Coast, in the state of Main. As a boy he showed talent in drawing, but only moderate artistic ambitions. This only changed when he was old enough to take up a profession. Instead of following in his father's footsteps and working for the government, Jonathan, his middle name Eastman became his first name only later, decided to train as a lithographer, which he did in Boston. Afterwards, like many artists of the 19th century, he led a wandering life and made his living as a portraitist. His career as a painter only began after an art association became aware of him and enabled him to train in Europe.

His first station led him to Germany, where he studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy under the history painter and graphic artist Heinrich Mücke. He also took private lessons with the German-American artist Emanuel Gottlieb Leutze. After his intermezzo in Germany he travelled all over Europe. Among the most important stations were London and The Hague, where he lived for several years and sutudied the old Dutch masters. Only the death of his mother forced him to return to the USA. The desire to travel did not remain without influence on Johnson's choice of motifs, who never completely gave up portrait painting, but became increasingly enthusiastic about landscape painting. His style is described as sober, sometimes almost photographic. This is particularly evident in one of his most famous paintings, which shows a wigwam of the Ojibwa, who are Native Americans. As he grew older, he developed a sketchy style, which eventually also influenced his landscape paintings.

However, his probably most famous painting "Negro Life at the South" was created during a phase in which he concentrated mainly on rural scenes. Interestingly, the work was presented to the public shortly before the outbreak of the War of Secession. In the last third of his life, Johnson became involved in numerous artists' associations and increasingly concentrated on promoting painting, although he did not stop creating art himself until his death in 1906. © Meisterdrucke
