Benjamin West (1738-1820) was particularly noted for his paintings of historical events and portraits. Born in or near Philadelphia, PA, West studied with William Williams when he came to Philadelphia in the late 1740s. In either 1759 or 1760, he traveled to Italy to study art. His works were so well received abroad that he decided to remain in Europe, opening a studio in London as a portrait painter. West's 1770 work, "Death of Wolfe," gained the attention of the British royalty, and King George soon commissioned him to paint several more heroic death scenes. His great knowledge of the history of art and literature is apparent in his work, particularly in his French romantic style painting, "Death on a Pale Horse," 1802.

West was a charter member of the Royal Academy, founded in 1768. He later became its second president. West decided to keep his permanent residence in London, remaining there until his death in 1820. After the American Revolutionary War, many young American artists went to Europe to study, and quite a few well-known artists temporarily moved to London to study with West. Among them were Charles Willson Peale, Rembrandt Peale, Gilbert Stuart, John Trumbull, and Thomas Sully.
