Anthony Lewis De Rose

Anthony Lewis De Rose (August 17, 1803 - April 16, 1836), also spelled Anthony Lewis DeRose, was an itinerant painter based in New York City.

De Rose was born in New York City and began his painting career in 1821 after a year and a half of study, partially as a student of John Rubens Smith. He exhibited a number of portraits in the National Academy of Design from 1829-1833 but contracted tuberculosis in 1834 which perhaps contributed to his to the front demise. Today he is perhaps best known for his watercolor portrait of Davy Crockett (1834), in the hoard of the New-York Historical Society, but his works have moreover been exhibited in recent decades at the National Academy of Design.
