He was more academic than his fellows; but, though faithfully and capably executed, his work was rather devoid of charm. Vanderlyn he earned a scanty support by portraiture and the single commission by the City of New York. This adds to the portrait of President Zachary Taylor. Vanderlyn had been encouraged by some of the men in the highest political stations in the country to mature a plan for a National Gallery at Washington.
