George Fuller

Fuller, George, 1822–84, American portrait, figure, and landscape painter, b. Deerfield, Mass.; pupil of Henry K. Brown at Albany. He first practiced portraiture in Boston and later in New York City and then turned to farming. Acclaim for his painting came in the last decade of his life, when the originality of treatment, richness of tone, and pictorial qualities of his later works awakened widespread interest. Among Fuller's best canvases are Nydia, And She Was a Witch, The Quadroon, and Head of a Boy (all: Metropolitan Mus. of Art); Winifred Dysart (Worcester, Mass., Art Mus.); Turkey Pasture, Kentucky, and Arethusa (both: Mus. of Fine Arts, Boston).
