Charles Ethan Porter

Charles Ethan Porter (c. 1847 March 6, 1923) was an American still life painter and among relatively few African Americans of the nineteenth and early 20th century to work as a professional artist. A student at the National Academy of Design in New York City, he was one of the first African Americans to exhibit there. He attracted the notice of painter Frederic Edwin Church and writer Mark Twain, who encouraged his career and study in Paris. He worked in Hartford, Connecticut, and New York City.
