HEADE, Martin Johnson, artist, born in Bucks county, Pennsylvania He began his career as a portrait painter, studied in Italy, travelled in the west, and then settled in Boston as a landscape-painter. This brought him into relations with Reverend James C. Fletcher, who induced him to visit Brazil with a view to preparing an illustrated work on hum-ruing-birds. The difficulties then existing in properly chromo-lithographing his fine designs caused the abandonment of the work, but the pictures were purchased by Sir Morton Peto and taken to London. Mr. Heade has painted many western and tropical scenes, also views on the Hudson and the Massachusetts coast, which are characterized by rich effects of color and light, and by poetic sentiment. His studio is in New York city. Among his best-known works are " High Tide on the Marshes," " Nicaragua," " Off the California Coast" (which was exhibited at the Centennial exhibition at Philadelphia in 1876), and "South American Scene." He has recently sent to exhibitions of the Academy "On the St. John's River, Florida " (1885), and " Sunset, Florida" (1886).
