Joseph Whiting Stock was active/lived in Massachusetts. A folk-art portrait painter whose name remains prominent in American art, Joseph Stock was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, and lived and worked there most of his life, painting more than 900 works during his brief career. He sometimes shared a studio with photographer O.H. Cooley and may have used some of his photographs in his portraits.
