Portrait of Georgine Shillard-Smith (c.1909). Hugh Henry Breckenridge (American, 1870-1937). Oil on canvas. Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Trained in the academic style of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Breckenridge displayed his academic training in his portraits. Since it was his largest source of income, he spent a great deal of time producing portraiture. His portraits are traditionally in an academic style with clean, smooth brushstrokes, attention to fine detail, subtlety of light, and a focus on realism.

 The Poor Man’s Store, 1885, oil on canvas and wood by John Frederick Peto, American, 1854-1907.  Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusettes, USA.

   The store doesn’t carry items desired by the wealthy but is interesting in its own right. Having studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Peto used the trompe d’oeil style of painting giving the composition a greater three-dimensional feel.

  He earned his living as a photographer, sculptor, and artist, but sank into obscurity after 1889.
