Harding spent his early adult years in the state of New York but later moved to Pittsburgh where he opened a sign-painting shop. After painting a picture of his wife, portrait orders rolled in. Harding's portrait of Daniel Boone was the only one painted of him during his lifetime. He also painted President James Madison. Harding died on April 1, 1866, in Boston, Massachusetts.

619. Adolph Shulz was a well-respected Indiana artist and he eventually began teaching students.  One such student was Alberta Rehm. She was more than twenty years younger than Adolph.  After awhile, her motives turned to more than just learning how to paint.  Adolph divorced his wife and married Alberta.  Many people frowned on his actions, but never lost respect for him as an artist. She was also quite accomplished as seen in the below oil. These three paintings are from the fine collection of the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, Lafayette, Indiana.
