Boutelle, DeWitt Clinton
American (1820-1884)



Born in Troy, New York in 1820, DeWitt Clinton Boutelle was inspired by the work of Thomas Cole and Asher Durand.  Beginning in 1846, the artist spent the next thirteen years traveling and working in the areas around New York City and Philadelphia, also painting in the Hudson River Valley and New England.  In 1859, at the invitation of wealthy industrialist Samuel Wetherill, he settled in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, joining a small group of landscape painters there.

Boutelle was a member of the Brooklyn Art Association and National Academy of Design and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Boston Athenaeum, Washington Art Association, National Academy of Design and American Art Union. His work is held in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.; High Museum of Art, Atlanta and Newark Museum in New Jersey.
