Only a few painters became famous as young people thanks to their talent. John Singleton Copley, who grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, as the son of Anglo-Irish colonists, is certainly a prime example of this. He painted a portrait of his brother at the age of 14. He earned his first money at the age of fifteen with a portrait of a local clergyman, and at sixteen he painted his early work "Mars, Venus and Vulcan", which is still famous today. Copley not only fed the family through his art, he also quickly rose to the upper circles of Boston.

During this period of the Seven Years' War for possession of Canada, "America" was considered a rough corner and an eternal source of unrest. Perhaps this was one of the reasons why Copley's paintings also caused a sensation in Great Britain from 1766 onwards, especially the portrait "Boy with Squirrel". Critics compared it with Rubens or van Dyck, and recommended an engagement in Europe. While Boston, in particular, gradually developed into a stronghold of colonial discontent, Copley was emphatically apolitical; his wife's family were all "loyalists" - his father-in-law, Mr. Clarke, was one of the aggrieved importers at the famous "Boston Tea Party". Copley left Massachusetts in 1774, the year the war broke out, and was never to return.

In London Copley began a second career as a history painter. Historical pieces were in great demand in the nationally conscious, up-and-coming island empire of the time. He made his debut with the "Death of the Earl of Chatham" and painted sea pieces such as the surrender of Admiral de Winter, but also religious themes such as "Hagar and Ismael in the Desert". But Copley did not deny his American roots either. After the independence of the United States, he was the first to dare to paint a ship with the U.S. flag - "Watson and the Shark", a salvation from extreme hardship, became a success on both sides of the Atlantic. Copley painted portraits of many famous Americans during their stays in London, including the later US Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. However, planned visits to the old homeland never came about. The Napoleonic Wars consumed his fortune.

John Singleton Copley is now highly regarded on both sides of the Atlantic. His son John Singleton Copley jr., a brilliant lawyer and jurist, later even became British Lord Chancellor. © Meisterdrucke
