Minneapolis Institute of Arts



Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Although Benjamin West was born in Pennsylvania, in 1760 he departed the United States for a tour of Italy. Three years later West settled in London, where he remained until his death. West is most noted for his historical paintings, scenes of ancient and contemporary history, although he rose to international prominence as a portrait painter. In 1766, he painted this portrait of Lady Diana Mary Barker of Speen House in Berkshire, England.
