MORRELL, Imogene Robinson, artist, born in Attleboro, Bristol County, Massachusetts Her maiden name was Robinson, and in 1869 she married Abram Morrell. She began her art education at the age of sixteen, at Newark, New Jersey, and subsequently continued it in New York city. After teaching art at Charlestown and Auburndale, Massachusetts, she went in 1856 to Dusseldorf, Germany, where she was a pupil of Adolf Schroedter and of Camphausen, the court painter. In 1864 she visited Paris and studied under Francois Louis Francais and Thomas Couture. Her principal productions during her sojourn in the French capital, where she resided for over ten years, were "The First Battle of the Puritans" and " Washington Welcoming the Provision Trains at Newburg, New York, in 1778" (1874). She has also painted a "Historical Portrait of General John A. Dix," which was afterward purchased for the capitol at Washington (1882); and portraits of Howell Cobb and John C. Spencer, ex-secretaries of the United States treasury. She resides at present (1888) in Washington, D. C., where she devotes herself to portrait-painting, and where she teaches in the " National academy of fine arts," which was established by her in 1879. Her two large historical pictures, " Washington" and the "Battle of the Puritans." have been highly praised both in this country and in France.
