George Taggart

George Henry Taggart was born in Port Washington, New York in 1865.  A portraitist and genre painter, he was the first significant artist to come to Utah since Enoch Wood Perry.  He died in 1924.

Taggart studied in Paris at Académie Julian with Bouguereau, Ferrier, and Lefebvre.  He exhibited his work Travailleurs des Champs at the Paris salon.  He came to Salt Lake City to take care of a lung ailment in 1900 and stayed for several summers.

While he was in Utah, he received a major commission to paint the likenesses of the General Authorities of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints including  George Teasdale (1900), a tonalist portrait of one of the early General Authorities.
