    • Henry Peters Gray (June 23, 1819 - November 12, 1877) was an American portrait and genre painter. Born in New York City he was a pupil of Daniel Huntington in New York, and subsequently studied in Rome and Florence. Elected a member of the National Academy of Design in 1842, he succeeded Huntington as president in 1870, holding the position until 1871.[1] The later years of his life were devoted to portrait work. He was strongly influenced by the old Italian masters, painting in mellow colour with a classical tendency. One of his notable canvases was an allegorical composition called "The Birth of our Flag" (1875). He died in New York City.
