Name: James Earl
Dates: (1761 - 1796)
Nationality: American
Biography: James Earl was born in Leicester, Massachusetts, the younger brother of the noted portraitist Ralph Earl (1751–1801). Nothing is known of James Earl’s early training. He followed his brother to London sometime during the mid-1780s, began to exhibit at the Royal Academy in 1787, and became a student there in 1789. Earl mastered the fashionable British portrait style that was practiced by contemporaries such as John Hoppner (1758–1810), George Romney (1734–1802), and Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723–1792), and enjoyed a successful career in London where his patrons consisted mainly of expatriate American loyalists. He returned to his native country in 1794, settled in Charleston, South Carolina, and painted portraits of the local gentry. He died there of yellow fever.
