Though he originally hailed from Bordentown, New Jersey, Charles Lawrence was very active in the Philadelphia art scene. Between 1811 and 1832 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts he exhibited landscapes, portraits and copy work, such as this landscape documenting the grounds of the Bordentown estate of Joseph Bonaparte (the former King of Spain).
