Biography

Nothing but the name, given in the inscription as D. G. Stouter, / Artist, is known about the artist who created the National Gallery's painting, On Point (1980.62.68). However, the source he copied has been identified as an 1854 Gleason's Pictorial article on grouse shooting, which is accompanied by a print almost identical to Stouter's painting. The artist was, therefore, active in 1854 or later. Like many naive artists who copied print sources, Stouter simplified elements of the original, but the painting still relates to the tradition of American nineteenth-century sporting painting, a popular genre of the period. [This is an edited version of the artist's biography published in the NGA Systematic Catalogue]
