Artist. He was most often known for his portrait paintings. Among his more well-known portraits are his wife Frances Osgood (a popular poet) and Edgar Allan Poe. He studied in England for a time and worked in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. He also designed his own grave monument, based on his wife's poem "The Hand That Swept the Sounding Lyre." The monument also marks his wife and daughters and the lyre at the top shows five broken strings to signify each member of the family.
