DOUGHTY, Thomas, artist, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19 July 1793; died in New York City, 24 July 1856. He was apprenticed in his youth to a leather manufacturer, and afterward carried on the business ia his own name. He painted in his leisure moments, without a master, and had received a quarter's tuition in India ink drawing, when a growing taste for art induced him to adopt it as a profession about 1820. He painted for many years in the United States, and afterward in London and Paris, acquiring a high reputation by his paintings of American scenery, he was one of the earliest American artists to make evident the charm of what is called the "silvery tone," and to reproduce autumnal effects with genuine grace and emphasis. His works include "A Peep at the Catskills"; "View on the Hudson" ; "Lake Scene" ; "Old Mill" ; "Delaware WaterGap" ; "Scene on the Susquehanna"; and "A View near Paris."
