JOHNSON, David, artist, born in New York city, 10 May, 1827. He was educated in the public schools, and received a few lessons in the beginning of his career from John F. Crosby, but since that time has pursued his work without a master, spending his professional life in New York. His style is carefully finished, rich in color, and indicates a faithful study of American scenery. In 1860 he was elected an associate, and in 1862 a member, of the National academy. He was one of the founders of the Artists' fund society, and has exhibited at the academy "Echo Lake" (1867); "On the Wallkill River" (1869); "New Berlin, New York" (1870); "View of Barrytown, New York" (1871); "Lake George" (1874); "Near Noroton, Connecticut" (1876); "Greenwood Lake" (1877); "Morning at Harbor Islands" (1878); and "Dollar Island" (1880). He exhibited at the Centennial of 1876 "Scenery on the Housatonic," which was also shown at the Paris salon in 1877; "Old Nan of the Mountain," and "A Brook Study," which received one of the first awards. Among his recent paintings are "View of Pompton, New Jersey" (1882); "Oak Grove," and "Oaks on the Genesee" (1883); "Pasturage" (1884); "Sunset" (1885); and "Landscape and Cattle" (1887).
