Robert Lee MacCameron was celebrated in Europe and the United States for his insightful portraits. He moved to London in 1888, where he worked as an illustrator, before going to Paris to study at the École des Beaux-Arts. There, he studied with the major artists of the day, including Jean-Léon Gérôme and James McNeil Whistler. His portrait commissions ranged from European nobility to prominent American politicians, including Presidents McKinley and Taft. In addition, MacCameron painted scenes and portraits of the diverse ethnic mix that populated American cities at the turn of the century.
