John Wesley Jarvis (1780 South Shields, England - 1840 New York) came to Philadelphia, USA at the age of 15. From 1796 to 1801 he was apprenticed by the engraver Edward Savage, then moved to New York City and from 1802 to 1810 worked in partnership with Joseph Wood, painting portraits and miniatures. He moved to Baltimore in 1810, but returned to New York in 1813, where he painted a series of full-length portraits of heroes of the War of 1812, for the New York City Hall. From 1820 onwards, he spent his winters in the South - New Orleans, Richmond and Washington. He became paralyzed in 1834 and spent his remaining yeas in New York. The Metropolitan Museum owns a portrait of a man, signed "Jarvis 1809".
