The organization of this study follows Stuart through the eight cities in which he worked: Newport and Scotland (1755-75), London (1775-87), Dublin (1787-93), New York (1793-94), Philadelphia (1794-1803), Washington (1803-5), and Boston (1805-28).

The genius of Gilbert Stuart by Dorinda Evans( Book )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Gilbert Stuart was probably the most gifted American portraitist of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He is best known for his "Athenaeum" portrait of George Washington, which is today a national icon. In this book, Dorinda Evans combines a wealth of original insights with revealing new documentation to present a long-needed, scholarly treatment of Stuart's life and influential work." "In assessing Stuart's artistic importance, Evans argues that his 1796 "Athenaeum" portrait of Washington - the most recognized likeness of the president - was a landmark in the expression of contemporary ideas about moral strength. More generally, she shows that Stuart's painting reflected a genius for interpreting the sitter's personality and a growing awareness of painting's public role in conveying uplifting messages about social dignity and virtue. She challenges the view that his later paintings show a decline, revealing many as concerned with expressing the human soul in a fresh and naturalistic way." "Evans also explores Stuart's private life, discounting recent portrayals of him as an outcast and a confidence trickster. She concludes that his notoriously erratic behavior, which veered from prolonged lethargy to reckless activity and extravagance, was a sign of manic-depressive illness. Evans gathers information about Stuart from a wide variety of previously untapped sources, including unpublished interviews with the artist that shed new light on controversies over his portraits of Washington and Thomas Jefferson."--Jacket
