BOUTELLE, De Witt Clinton, artist, born in Troy, New York, 6 April 1820; died 5 November 1884. Although a self-taught artist, he came early under the influence of Cole and Durand. His first picture, painted in 1839, was sold for $5. After painting in New York and Philadelphia he removed his studio to Bethlehem, Pao, where he lived for many years. Among his works are "Trout Brook Shower" (1851) ; "Morning in the Valley of the Batter-kill," which has been engraved; "Niagara," "Terrapin Tower, Niagara'; and a life-size portrait of Asa Packer, presented by his sons to Lehigh University. He was elected an associate of the national academy in 1853, and member of the Pennsylvania academy in 1862, but seldom exhibited in public. He was a close student of nature, and a hard and conscientious worker.
