American "Colonial Era" artist famous for his portraits of American men and women.
He was apprenticed to his uncle, artist James Claypoole (a limner and painter) from 1745 to 1755. In 1764 he escorted his cousin, Betsey Shewell to England for her marriage to the American "expatriate" artist Benjamin West. Pratt stayed on in England for two and a half years as a pupil and colleague to West. It was during this time that he painted one of his best known works "The American School".
In March of 1768 he returned to America. He died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 9, 1805.
