Benjamin West, painting from 1760s to the 1810s, was a forefather of American painting. His works include neoclassical and American rococo paintings based on mythological and antiquitarian themes, many of which are recognizable. He also is also known for depictions of the settling of the New World, like Penn's Treaty with The Indians, and for portraits of the American Revolution.
