John Trumbull

John Trumbull (1756-1843) was an American portraitist and painter of historical events. Thomas Jefferson met Trumbull in London in 1786 and invited his new acquaintance to visit him in Paris. Trumbull arrived on the continent in August 1786 and spent several weeks in Jefferson's household. The two men formed a friendship that would last through their mutual tenure in France.
