Biography   Henrietta De Beaulieu Dering Johnston

Born in Dublin, Ireland to a French Huguenot family, Henrietta Johnston was America's first pastel painter, doing nearly forty portraits of prominent people in Charleston, South Carolina.  Her body of work is an important documentary of leading people in an important area in American history, and about 30 of her works survive. 

Since pastels were not available in America when she arrived, she obviously brought supplies with her.  She used 9 x 12 sheets of paper and put the paintings in wooden frames that she signed, dated and wrote location.  Her portrait faces are fairly realistic likenesses, but the bodies are stiff in appearance, perhaps painted from the wooden arms that were found in her effects.   ...  Displaying 750 of 4205 characters.
