About the artist:

John Buxton grew up in Oxford, NC, but has lived near Pittsburgh since 1963, where he spent 31 years as a commercial illustrator. Perhaps the rolling hills of western Pennsylvania and the echo of all that had taken place within those hills inspired John Buxton to start painting scenes from the 18th century.

With a gentle nudge from his close friend Robert Griffing, John produced his first historical painting Along Laurel Ridge in 1994, a scene depicting the British 60th Royal American Regiment heading towards Fort Duquesne. John has produced paintings depicting Rogers Rangers, Fort Ligonier in 1758, as the French troops prepare to strike in an effort to drive the British forces out, to a piece where in 1753, young Major George Washington delivers the British request to the French to leave the Ohio Valley region. With certainty and accuracy, John Buxton captures the essence of both the contest for and life on the Eastern Frontier.

Lord Nelson's Gallery has represented John Buxton since 1995. John's paintings have sold and won awards at many of the nation's top western art shows including the Masters of the American West and the Quest for the West show. He also is an annual participant in Gettysburg's History Meets the Arts show.
