BREVOORT, James Renwick, painter, born in Westchester County, New York, 20 July, 1832. After studying with Thomas Cummings in this country he spent several years in European schools, and sketched in the picturesque districts of England, Holland, and Italy. He was elected an associate of the national academy in 1861, and a full member in 1863. He has made special study of perspective, and was professor of that branch of drawing at the national academy in 1872. He is very successful in the treatment of American landscape in a low tone of color, this being his favorite line of work. Among his pictures are "Scene in Holland"; "Lake of Como" (1878); "Storm on English Moor" (1882); "May Morning, Lake Co-mo" (1883); "New England Scene"; "Morning in Early Winter" (1884); "The Wild November Comes at Last"; "Windy Evening on the Moors" (1885); and "Windy Day on a Moor" (1886).
