Henry Inman was America's premier portrait painter during the 1830s. He trained in New York City with the then-renowned painter John Wesley Jarvis. The artist went on to become one of the foremost members of the "Knickerbocker" circle, and together with Samuel F. B. Morse, the painter and later telegraph magnate, he founded the National Academy of Design. Subsequently Inman was much sought after as a portraitist by society figures in New York City and Philadelphia, until his early death in 1846.
