BARTHOLOMEW, Edward Sheffield, sculptor, born in Colchester, Connecticut, in 1822 ; died in Naples, Italy, 2 May 1858. As a child he evinced a taste for art, but qualified himself to be a dentist and began to practice that profession in Hartford. He soon abandoned it, however, first for painting and afterward for sculpture, in which latter branch he attained eminence. He had charge of the Wadsworth gallery, Hartford, from 1845 till 1848. After studying for a year in the national academy of design, New York, he went to Italy, and after 1850 made Rome his home. Among his best-known works are "Blind Homer led by his Daughter" ; "Eve" ; "Campagna Shepherd Boy" ; "Genius of Painting"; "Youth and Old Age "; "Evening Star" ; "Eve Repentant" ; "Washington and Flora "; "A Monument to Charles Carroll "; "Bellsarius at the Porta Pincinia" and "Ganymede." The Wadsworth gallery, Hartford, Connecticut, contains a large number of his works.
