a portrait painter active in the colony of New York. He was a pupil of Benjamin West in London. Nothing is known of his early training, nor of the reason or date of his journey to London, though he is said to have been the second painter to study with West, and may be one of the figures in The American School, the well-known painting by Matthew Pratt. He left that city soon after the arrival of Charles Willson Peale in February, 1767; the latter artist recorded that Delanoy had remained in town long after West believed he had returned home. West encouraged his pupil to copy one or two paintings to take home with him.
