Asahel Lynde Powers Biography

The eldest son of seven siblings, Asahel Lynde Powers was born in Springfield, Vermont. By the age of eighteen Powers had developed a recognizable Folk Art style as his earliest known portrait is dated 1831. It already showed his characteristic use of vibrant decorative background colors in portraiture. In 1893 Asahel Lynde Powers moved to New York State, working in Franklin and Clinton Counties, where he collaborated with another artist named Rice. More than seventy portrait likenesses by Powers are known, including men, women, children in oil on both wooden panels and canvas. In 1841 Poweres moved again, this time to Olney in Richland County, Illinois. It is not known if he continued producing paintings after this move as none have been found from the Illinois period. He died in Illinois in 1843.
