Thomas Sully did for posterity that, for which many other 
artists would have received the blessings of posterity had they 
done. He kept a register of his work day by day, noting the 
name of the subject, the size of the canvas, the dates when 
each was begun and when finished, for whom painted and 
his price for the same. At the end of each year he added up 
the total number of his works during the year and their 
total value; and as his artistic career covered the span of 
three score and ten,' he has recorded the painting of 2520 
pictures, of a value of $246,744.00, or an average of 36 paint- 
ings a year, of an average annual value of $3525.00, a very 
comfortable income for the greater part of his life, during the 
period he lived. But these figures do not show precisely the 
entire number of his works, for, difficult as it is to understand 

'His first entry is "May 10, 1801. Began miniature of Chester 
Siilly, in Norfolk, Va., being mj^ first attempt from life, for Mary Lee" ; 
and his last entry, " January 26, 1872. Copy of Michael Angelo's 
from a print."

when he seems to have followed this apparently exact method 
of entering his works from the very commencement of his 
professional career, he did not record all of the portraits that 
he painted. This lack of completeness takes away from the 
register its authority as a final means of identification of 
those he did paint or of condemnation of those he did not 
paint but are attributed to him. These omissions may be 
accounted for in part from his custom, as his great-nephew 
and step-grandson, Mr. Garrett Cross Neagle,^ informs me, of 
writing " his memoranda on a slate which he kept hang- 
ing over his desk, in his study, upon which he would, each 
day, enter the occurrences of the day, and when a portrait 
was ordered he would in that way make a memorandum of 
it. These he transcribed into monthly memoranda of por- 
traits he painted, and at the expiration of each year he would 
enter the memoranda into his Register. In transcribing the 
same he may have omitted entering, in some cases, such 
portraits as had not been finished at the end of the year, 
intending to do so on their completion, as at the end of each 
year he notes the unfinished work on hand." It is of course 
to be regretted that there are any omissions of portraits 
known to have been painted by Mr. Sully, but such is cer- 
tainly the case, and while those so known have not been inserted 
in their proper places in the list as prepared for publication, 
they will be given at the end of the hst, as " Portraits not in 
the Register." 

The register is written throughout in Mr. Sully's minute 
chirography, in a book seven inches square, and so little did 
his handwriting change that it is difficult to judge from it 
when the entries may have been transcribed, excepting that 
toward the last the tremor of advancing age becomes ap- 
parent. As was not unnatural in writing unfamiliar proper 
names, they are often set down phonetically, and Mr. Sully's 
spelling has been followed in printing, the correction being 
given in the notes. To many names he has added some 
description, as means of identification or for other purposes, 

' I am also indebted to Mr. Neagle for the records from the Sully 
Family Bible printed here for the first time.

and all of these notes are printed after the names, within 
quotation marks. Mr. Sully made his "I" and "J" ahke, 
above the line, so that in some instances they may be incor- 
rectly transcribed, which of course was unavoidable; with 
this exception the list is believed to be a faithful transcript 
of the names as he recorded them, only arranged alphabetic- 
ally for convenience of reference. Some very few entries had 
to be omitted for lack of means of identification, such as 
"A lady from description"; "From a sketch of a gentle- 
man"; "A whole-length of a child"; etc. Although his 
work was chiefly in portraiture, Mr. Sully did paint some 
other pictures, but they are not included in this publication; 
a few, interesting for their history, are, however, noted in this 
introduction. This original register, on the death of the 
painter, became the property of his daughter. Miss Blanche 
Sully, who presented it in May, 1896, to Mr. Ferdinand J. 
Dreer, and it became the property of the Historical Society of 
Pennsylvania through Mr. Dreer's munificent gift of his in- 
valuable collection of manuscripts. Owing to its chronological 
arrangement, the only possible one consonant with its con- 
temporary character, the register was almost useless as a 
work of reference, although one frequently referred to, and 
at the request of the learned librarian of the Historical 
Society I undertook the present publication, so as to make 
it generally accessible, and it has been a great pleasure for me 
to do so, as I remember the author of it among my earliest 

When a mere lad, just entering my teens, I became pos- 
sessed with the desire to have the autographs of distinguished 
artists, and with that end in view addressed letters to Rem- 
brandt Peale, Asher Brown Durand, S. F. B. Morse, better 
known as the inventor of the electric telegraph than as an 
artist, Thomas Sully, and others, to secure theirs. But even 
in that incipient stage of the disease, I was not content with 
a mere signature, so that instead of respectfully soliciting an 
autograph I concealed my immaturity by asking some per- 
sonal question of each, the answer to which would have an 
abiding interest. In this way came to me the following note 
from Mr. Sully: 

10 Thomas Sidly's Becjistcr of Portraits, 1801-1871. 

„ _ Philadelphia 25 Sept, 1860. 

Dear Sir; — 

I have no objection to complj'' with your request. I was born in 
Horncastle, Lincolonshire, Great Britain, 1783. Have resided in 
Philadelphia since 1808. 

Respectfully your obd. Servt 

Mr Chas. H Hart Thos. Sully 

Later on I had the privilege to become acquainted with 
the venerable painter, and made several visits to his historic 
painting room on the east side of Fifth Street, between 
Chestnut and Market Streets, the site of his house being the 
bed of the present Ranstead Street, at Fifth Street. This 
house belonged to the Girard Estate and was specially built 
for Mr. Sully, by Stephen Girard, w^th a suitable painting 
room (vide 10), expressly for the purpose in the back part 
of the house. This room was very large and lofty, lighted 
by a single window, extending from floor to ceiling and large 
enough to make half a dozen windows of ordinary size, which 
gave the painter a flood of light which he regulated of course 
by easily adjusted curtains. The piece de resistance upon the 
walls was his original life study of Queen Victoria, painted in 
Buckingham Palace, signed "T. S. London, May 15th 1838" 
and which was the first portrait painted of the young Queen 
after her coronation.^ Some years before Mr. Sully's death an 

'The Register reveals a very curious history of the whole-length 
portrait of the Queen painted for the St. George's Society of Philadel- 
phia, which is directly contrary to the commonly accepted history of that 
picture. Instead of its being the original portrait painted from life, as 
generally supposed, it is the last of four that Sully painted. It was 
possibly begun in England but was actually finished in Philadelphia 
after his return. These facts are shown by the dates he has set down for 
the beginning and the finishing of these portraits. The life study of 
Victoria (1749) was begun March 22, 1838, and finished May loth; the 
Bishop's half-length for the engraver (1750) was begun ]\Iay 25th and 
finished June 24th ; the whole-length " for the St Georges Society" (1751) 
was not begun until September 30th, 1838, or finished until January 14, 
1839 — indeed, at the close of the year 1838, he notes among his un- 
finished work " ^'ictoria for St George Society " — while the whole-length 
he painted for himself (1752) was begun after and finished before that 
for the St. George's Society. This accounts too, for 1751, being signed 
and dated " 1839," which heretofore has been considered a mistake.

ordinance of Philadelphia City Councils was passed providing 
for the opening of Ranstead Street from Fourth to Fifth 
Streets. To accomplish this the demolition of Mr. Sully's 
house was necessary, but upon the representation to Coun- 
cils, by some influential citizens, that Mr. Sully was an 
octogenarian and had occupied the house for nearly forty 
years, the ordinance was held in abeyance until after his 
demise, so that he should not be disturbed in the enjoyment 
of his old home. Mr. Sully was very diminutive in stature 
and frail in appearance, but with that courtly manner that 
is properly termed '' of the old school," now, alas, seen 
no more. He was always pleased to talk, in his quite 
gentle way, of the days that had gone and of the people 
he had known and painted, and he was always ready to 
give attention and counsel to any one really interested in 
his life pursuit. 

Thomas Sully was born June 19, 1783, and was the young- 
est son of Matthew^ (1769-1815) and Sarah Chester Sully 
(d. 1793), who were actors and came to this country, from 
England, with their family in 1792, settling in Charleston, 
S. C. They had a number of children, at least four sons -and 
five daughters, Lawrence, Matthew,' Chester, and Thomas; 
Harriet (m. Prof. Porcher of South Carolina), Elizabeth (m. 
Middleton Smith of Charleston, S. C), Jane (m, J. B. Le 
Roy), Mar}^, and Sarah (one of these m. Mons. Belzons, a 
French miniature painter in Charleston). Lawrence Sully, 
the eldest child, named for his grandfather, Dr. Lawrence 
Sully (d. 1775), of Exeter, England, was born in Kilkenny, 
Ireland, December 28, 1769. He was a miniature painter and 
soon removed to Richmond, Va., where on the last day of 
1793 he married Sarah Annis, of Annapolis, Md. He did not 
possess any great ability as a painter, judging from the two 
miniatures by him I have seen, and died toward the close 

*He married Elizabeth Robertson, of Virginia, and their son was 
Robert Matthew Sully, born in Petersburg, Va., July 17, 1803, and died 
in Madison, Wis., October 16, 185.5. He studied art with his uncle and 
later in England from 1824 to 1826. His portrait of Chief Justice 
John Marshall is in the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington, D. C, 
but wrongly attributed to Thomas Sull3^

of 1803, leaving his widow to survive him with three little 
daughters: — 

(1) Sarah Chester Sully, b. October 1, 1796; d. 

December 15, 1856. 

(2) Ehzabeth Chester Sully, b. January 7, 1799; d. 

October 13, 1821. 

(3) Mary Chester Sully, b. September 18, 1802; m. 

May 28, 1826, John Neagle;* d. March 4, 1845. 

Thomas Sully was sent to the same school in Charleston 
as was attended by Charles Fraser, later the well-known 
miniature painter, and the similar tastes of the two boys 
made them fast friends. Sully was eager to follow the pro- 
fession of his brother Lawrence, and Fraser gave him his 
first lesson in art, but he was balked in this desire and placed 
in an insurance office, where he paid no attention to the 
drudgery of business, devoting all of his time to sketching, 
until he was apprenticed to his brother-in-law, M. Belzons, to 
learn the art of miniature painting. But Belzons not only 
was an insignificant painter, but he had a violent temper 
which resulted in the severance of the relation of master and 
pupil, and Thomas joined his brother LawTence in Richmond. 
In 1801, the two brothers removed to Norfolk, and here on 
May 10, Thomas Sully painted his first miniature from 
life, the portrait of his brother Chester. He soon determined 
to abandon painting in little for oil portraits, and his first 
sitter was William Armistead, whose portrait in oil he began 
November 23, 1802. The next year Sully went to Richmond 
to join his brother Lawrence, who had returned there the 
previous season, and he had been there but a short time 

'John Neagle was born in Boston, ]\Iass., during the temporary 
sojourn of his parents from Philadelphia, November 4, 1796, and died 
in Philadelphia, September 17, 1865. He was among the most eminent 
of the early portrait painters of America, easily standing second only 
to Gilbert Stuart. He was a powerful colorist, a skilful delineator of 
character, and a vigorous draughtsman. A register of his portraits 
would be as interesting as this of his friend and kinsman Sully. What 
is curious, neither of these fine portraitists painted the portrait of the

when death came to Lawrence, whose widow and helpless 
family, being unprovided for, Thomas undertook the burden 
of supporting, a burden that was changed into a pleasure 
and a duty on June 27, 1805, when he married Mrs. Lawrence 
Sully, in Warren County, North Carolina. Mrs, Sully, who 
was born November 24, 1770, died in Philadelphia July 25, 
1867, having had nine children by him: — 

(1) Jane Chester Sully, b. May 7, 1806; d. May — , 


(2) Jane Cooper Sully, b. January 14, 1807; m. 

February 16, 1833, WiUiam Henry Westray

*Son of John and Eleanora (Westray) Darley (407 and 408), two 
well-known English actors, and brother of Felix 0. C. Darley, the emi- 
nent illustrator. I\Irs. Darley painted some portraits and her son 
is Francis Thomas Sully Darley, the well-known organist. 

*He was born in Sansom Street above 7th, Philadelphia, and fol- 
lowed his father's profession with no little ability. His portraits of 
WiUiam E. Burton as Bob Acres, of Edwin S. Conner as Romeo, of 
Edwin Forrest, of Robert Hamilton, of Robert Campbell Maywood 
as Tam O'Shanter, of John R. Scott as St. Pierre, of Francis C. 
Wemyss, of William Henry Harrison, and of Governor Francis R. 
Shunk, were lithographed by Newsam, but by some unaccountable 
carelessness the affix "Jr." after the name of the painter, as it appears 
on each of the Newsam lithographs just mentioned, has been, with 
marked unanimity, omitted from the titles as printed in the Catalogue 
of the Lithographic Portraits of Albert Newsam, published in the Penn- 
sylvania Magazine of History and Biography for October, 1900, 
January and April, 1901, so that persons have been misled into attrib- 
uting these portraits to Thomas Sully the elder, instead of to his son 
Thomas Wilcocks Sully, or, as he was commonly called," Thomas Sully, 
Jr." A portrait that he painted of John Tyler, with the White House 
in the background, is an excellent virile piece of work.

Soon after his marriage Sully, at the suggestion of Thomas 
Apthorpe Cooper (356), the tragedian, removed to New York, 
where he sought instruction from John Trumbull, who how- 
ever was loath to teach one who he easily found would 
soon outstrip him, so to acquire some technical knowledge, 
that he felt he needed, Sully paid Trumbull SlOO to paint 
the portrait of his wife and thus by being present gained what 
he was seeking. From New York he went to Hartford, in 
1807, and thence to Boston, where he painted a portrait of 
Isaac P. Davis (421), the warm friend of Gilbert Stuart, 
which introduced Sully's art to the master painter of America, 
who was most unusually generous in his criticism. At the 
instigation of Benjamin Chew Wilcocks (1870), whose por- 
trait he had painted in New York, Sully visited Philadelphia 

'Colonel John Hill Wheeler was b. in Murfreesboro, N. C, August 
6, 1806, and died in Washington, D. C, December 7, 1882. He was 
the author of the History of North Carolina, published in 1851. 

'Was graduated at West Point in 1841 and assigned to the 2nd 
Infantry then engaged in the war with the Seminole Indians, and par- 
ticipated with credit in the attack on Hawe Creek Camp, January 25, 
1842. In 1853 he was engaged in the operations against the Rogue 
River Indians and in 1860 in those against the Cheyennes. In the 
Civil War he participated at Fair Oaks, Malvern Hill, and Chancellors- 
ville, receiving brevets for each of these engagements. In 1863 he 
was assigned to the command of the department of Dakota, where 
he soon gained note for his expeditions against hostile Indians. At 
the close of the war he was brevetted ^lajor-General of Volunteers 
and Brigadier-General in the regular army.

in December, 1807, and early in 1808 took up his permanent 
residence there, then and for a dozen years after the metropo- 
lis of the country, and the first portrait he painted here was 
of Mr. Wilcocks's sister Ann (1872), afterward Mrs. Joseph R. 
Ingersoll. At the end of eighteen months he went to England 
for a year's study and like most American painters sought 
instruction from Be n j amiii West. Upon his return his im- 
provement was so marked that he at once became the most 
prominent portrait painter in Philadelphia, a position he 
never had to relinquish, and strange as it may seem his best 
work was done at this early period. His unquestioned master- 
piece, a full length of General Jonathan Williams (1878), 
was painted in 1815, while his exceptionally fine portraits 
of George Frederick Cooke (346), Samuel Coates (318), and 
James Ross (1448) were painted earlier. 

I do not intend to follow Sully's career in detail. That is 
shown by his work as entered in his register and can be found, 
down to 1835, his best period, with autobiographical minute- 
ness, in Dunlap's History of the Arts of Design in the United 
States, Vol. 2, pp. 101-141. But it is important to bear in 
mind the various places where he painted portraits during 
his art life. In Richmond and Norfolk, Va., 1801 to 1805; 
New York 1805 to 1807; Hartford and Boston 1807; Phila- 
delphia 1808 until his death, with the exception of his two 
visits to England, 1809-10 and 1837-38; and visits to Balti- 
more in March and April, 1820, and again November, 1820, to 
August, 1821, June to September, 1840, and October, 1852, to 
June, 1853; to Boston, July to September, 1831, August, 1836, 
December, 1840, and July, 1848; to Washington, D. C, April 
to June, 1840; to Charleston, S. C, December, 1841, to end of 
1842 and winter of 1845-46; to Providence, R. I., June, 1847, 
and to Richmond, Va., April to June, 1849, and October, 1850, 
to June, 1851. This itinerary will account for the wide dis- 
tribution of Sully's portraits over the entire country and the 
reason for his name's being so well known and respected. 

Besides portraits it may be worth noting that Sully, like 
so many eminent artists, was not above sign-painting in the 
early part of his career. In March, 1805, he enters in his 
Register a large " Sign of an Eagle," (8 ft. x 5 ft.) for the Eagle 
Tavern, Richmond, Va., for which he was paid fifty dollars. 

16 Thomas Sully's Register of Portraits, 1801-1871. 

This is however the only entry of the kind, unless with it 
may be classed his painting, ten years later, a " Frontispiece 
to the Chestnut St. Theatre" (8 ft. x 8 ft.) of the "Genii of 
Comedy and Tragedy." Just what a "frontispiece" for a 
theatre means, I am unable to say. Perhaps it was a stage 
curtain, although of rather small dimensions. In September, 
1824, he painted in a week, for William Strickland, the 
architect, the Arms of the City of Philadelphia to be placed 
over the triumphal arch for the reception of La Fayette. 
It is still intact in possession of the city. The only- history 
pieces he painted were in 1812, a Capture of Major Andri, for 
Kearney, the engraver, who doubtless intended to make a 
plate from it, but I cannot ascertain that he did so, and 
Washington Crossing the Delaware, the study for which he 
began in 1816, for the state of North Carolina, on a canvas 
36 X 48. He completed the next year the large picture (17 ft. 
X 12 ft.), when the state refused to accept it and it was thrown 
on the painter's hands. He was to have been paid the insignifi- 
cant sum of $1000 for it, but was glad to sell it to Doggett, 
a frame maker of Boston, for $500, who turned it over to 
the Boston Museum, where it was when the museum was 
broken up in 1892. Its present whereabouts are unknown. 
He later made a finished picture from the original sketch, and 
of the same size, for Sir James Wright, of Edinburgh, and it 
was in the old Scotch capital until recently and may still 
be there. In the same category belongs the huge equestrian 
picture of Washington (12 ft. 6 in. x 9 ft. 6 in.), painted in 
1842, which now is owned by the Union League of Phila- 
delphia but which adds nothing to the painter's fame. 

Mr. Sully was in his ninetieth year when he died on Novem- 
ber 5, 1872, and his last portrait (1053) was finished October 
31st, 1871, just a year and a few days before his death. This 
canvas I have seen recently and it is wonderfully good, both 
as a likeness and as a painting, considering the great age of 
the painter, far better indeed than the work that generally 
proceeded from the artist's easel in his later years, as though 
he had determined to make his valedictory worthy of his 
art and of his reputation. It is always sad to see the deca- 
dence of a great man's powers, in whatever field he may have 
tilled, but with an artist, perhaps more than in any other

vocation, the change from strength to weakness is so ap- 
parent, that one can have only the feeling of regret that the 
brush had not fallen from the hand in its fulness of power, 
rather than in its final struggle. 


The sizes given in the Register for portraits are the standard sizes 
of the several canvases used and not necessarily the size of the picture 
upon the canvas. These standard sizes are, in inches, Head, 17 x 20; 
Bust, 20 x 24 ; Half-Length, 25 x 30 ; Kit-Kat, 29 x 36 ; Three- 
QuARTER, 40 x 50 ; Bishop's Half-Length, 44 x 56; Whole-Length, 
58 X 94. In describing portraits, a head includes the shoulders, but 
not the arms ; a bust, the arms, but not the hands ; a half-length, the 
hands and may also include the legs above the knee; kit-kat, the same 
as half-length, only larger ; three-quarter length, includes the legs below 
the knee; Bishop's half-length, the same as three-quarters, only larger ; 
and whole length, includes the feet. There may of course be variations 
in sizes of canvas and in the placing of the portrait upon the canvas, 
at the pleasure of the artist, but the above are the standard sizes and 
descriptions of life size portraits. Sully's signature was a cypher of T. S. 



1. Abercrombie Dr. Kit-kat 1810 

Presumably the Rev. James Abercrombie, D.D. (1758-1841), 
who was for more than thirty-eight years one of the ministers 
of the United Churches of Christ Church and St. Peters, Phila- 
delphia and the head of the Philadelphia Academy, 1800-1817. 

2. Abercrombie Dr., "for his son 

in Baltimore." 3.6 x 2.10 1826 

3. Abert Col., "of Topo Engi- 

neers Washingn." S. Half-length 1839 

John James Abert (1788-1863), Colonel of Topographical En- 
gineers, 1811, was painted at the request of his corps and pre- 
sented to the U. S. ]\Iilitary Academy at West Point, where it 
now is.

4. Adams John. " P. U. S. small 

whole length (Morgan)." 2 f. 9 x 2 f . 1 1825 

This was a portrait of John Quincy Adams, President of the 
United States, which Mr. Sully painted for W. H. Morgan, a 
printseller of Philadelphia, and which was engraved by A. B. 
Durand, who received $700 for the plate, or nearly three times 
what Sully was paid for the painting. The head in this picture 
was after Stuart. Vide 5 and 6. 

5. Adams Prest. " Study in chalk 

to finish Stuart's whole 

length." ' 1829 

6. Adams Prest. "The back-gd. 

and drapery to Stuart." Whole length 1829 

Stuart painted John Quincy Adams in 1818. From this the 
Hon. Ward Nicholas Boylston ordered a whole length, but 
Stuart never painted more than the head, although repeatedly 
urged to finish it, and left it unfinished at his death, in 1828, and 
Sully was engaged to complete it. It was then given to Har- 
vard and is now in Memorial Hall. These items, 4, 5, and 6, 
are confusing. The plate by Durand, published by Morgan, is 
of the same picture as that in Harvard, yet it was painted and 
engraved in 1825. Why then four years afterward Sully should 
have made a "study in chalk" to finish Stuart's whole length 
when he had already four years before painted a like picture 
it is impossible to tell, unless it were difference in size, as also why 
the next item should read as though he had only painted in " the 
background and drapery to Stuart," when he painted everything 
but the head, for which he charged $350, and in his summary of 
unfinished work at end of the year he writes "Whole length 
of J. Q. Adams, head painted by Stuart, half finished."

Gilbert Motier de La Fayette (1757-1834) made his farewell 
visit to and tour through this country in 1824-25, arriving 
August 15, 1824, and departing Sept. 7, 1825. He was in 
Philadelphia from Sept. 28 to Oct. 5th, 1824, and again 
from July 18 to 21, 1825, and Sully made a study of his 
head while in Philadelphia during the first visit, which orig- 
inal study, signed and dated 1824, is owned by Herbert 
Welsh, Esq., of Germantown. This important study is not 
entered in the Register, which may be accounted for by 
a note under that year, "Some studies for other pictures 
are begun, but not registered." The subscriptions for 982 
failed and the portrait, which was not finished until 1833, was 
left on Sully's hands. He subsequently presented it to the 
Pa. Academy of the Fine Ai'ts and that institution later, 
with the artist's consent, transferred it to the city of Phila- 
delphia in exchange for West's painting of Paul and 
Barnabas which had been bequeathed to the City, and thus 
982 finally reached the destination originally intended for it 
and it hangs in the old State House. It is one of Sully's 
fine works. 983 is in hall of Hist. Soc. of Penna.

owned by Mrs. Lucy Wharton Drexel, there is one by Sullj'- 
signed " T. Sully 5 " and on the back, " T. Sully Miniature

Jarvis's portrait was doubtless made.

This statue was presented to the Hospital by John Penn in

Despenser's place at Wyecomb, but subsequently found its 
way to the junk shop where John Penn rescued it and sent 
it as a gift to the hospital. It has no iconographic value, 
having been modelled apparently after the figure in West's 
picture of the Treaty with the Indians.

Sully painted a picture that was engraved by John Cheney 
for The Gift, for 1837, of a young girl reading a letter addressed 
to "Mary H., " entitled The Love Letter. From its composi- 
tion it could be a portrait or a fancy picture. In May, 1891, 
at a sale of paintings from the Cooper Estate, at Davis and 
Harvey's Auction House, Philadelphia, this picture was sold 
as "Portrait of Miss E. Sims, of Pliiladelphia. " The canvas 
was signed "T. S. 1837." There is no portrait of Miss Sims 
in the Register,
