Erastus Salisbury Field's parents sent him to New York when he was 19 to study with the painter Samuel F.B. Morse. The lessons lasted no more than a year before he was back in Massachusetts.

In 1826, he was travelling through central Massachusetts and eastern New York looking for portrait commissions.

He married Phebe Gilmur in Ware, Massachusetts in 1831, and throughout the decade he worked in the Connecticut - Massachusetts area. By the 1840s he was in New York, occasionally exhibiting at the American Institute, until 1848 when he was called back to Massachusetts. He found work in Palmer and settled in the village of Sunderland in 1859 when his wife died.

He died at the age of 95.
