BIRCH, Thomas, artist, born in London, England, about 1779: died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 14 January 1851. He immigrated to the United States in 1793, established himself in Philadelphia about 1800, and began the painting of portraits. A visit to the capes of Delaware in 1807 turned his attention to marine views, in which he acquired a high reputation. During the war of 1812 he executed a series of historical paintings, representing the naval victories of the United States. He also painted landscapes, particularly snow scenes. The Harrison collection in Philadelphia contains his paintings of the engagements between the "United States" and the "Macedonian," and between the "Constitution" and the "Guerrigre." Three of his marine views are in the Claghorn collection.
