Daniel Boone

Oil sketch of Daniel Boone by Chester Harding, the only portrait of Boone painted from life.

Chester Harding's oil sketch of Daniel Boone was painted when Boone was 84 years old, a few months before his death. Harding painted Boone in June 1820 while Boone was living with his daughter Jemima Boone Callaway in Missouri. According to historian Ted Franklin Belue, "from this original oil portrait Harding made three copies: two busts and a full-length."
