Often called the 'American Rembrandt,' Eastman Johnson was born in Maine, where he first established himself as a portraitist. He studied in Dusseldorf with Emanuel Leutze, and returned to America in the 1850s, establishing a studio in New York. Down East Courtship is part of a series of finished studies for a larger composition Johnson never executed.
