English: Daniel Boone (1734 – 1820) was an American pioneer and frontiersman, who blazed the trail known as the "Wilderness Road".

Chester Harding portraits of Boone[edit]

In 1820, Chester Harding painted Daniel Boone from life. From the original oil sketch he made two more busts and a full-length portrait. Harding was probably the only artist to paint Boone from life; many other depictions of Boone are adapted from Harding's work. Painted three or four months before his death, Boone was so frail that he had to be steadied by a friend while the artist worked.
