ROGERS, Nathaniel, artist, born in Bridgehampton, L. I., in 1788; died 6 December, 1844. He was apprenticed to a ship-carpenter when he was a boy, but, having been disqualified by an accident for such a trade, turned his attention to art, for which he had always had a predilection. After painting by himself for some time, he went to New York in 1811 and became a pupil of Joseph Wood. Not long afterward he opened a studio for himself, and soon took high rank as a painter of miniatures. Among these were admirable portraits of the friends and literary partners, Fitz-Greene Halleck and Joseph Rodman Drake. His professional life was spent principally in New York, and he was one of the founders of the National academy in that city.
