BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: John Henry Brown (1818-1891), born in Lancaster, PA, began an apprenticeship in 1836 to the painter Arthur Armstrong while working as a clerk in the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Recorder's Office. In 1839 Brown established himself as a professional portraitist and sign painter, but in 1844 began devoting himself exclusively to miniature painting, initially with enormous success. The following year he settled in Philadelphia, where he exhibited his miniatures frequently at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and at the Artists' Fund Society until 1864. He was commissioned to do a portrait of Abraham Lincoln and also did works of many other notables, including James Buchanan and Stonewall Jackson.
