MOONEY, Edward Ludlow, artist, born in New York city, 25 March, 1813: died there in July, 1887. He began his art studies by attending the night-school of the Academy of design at the age of eighteen. After this he worked as a sign-painter until his twenty-third year, when he became a pupil of Henry Inman. While in that artist's studio he executed six admirable copies of Inman's portrait of Martin Van Buren, and also received the first gold medal that was awarded by the National academy of design. Subsequently Mr. Mooney studied with William Page, and was elected an associate of the academy in 1839 and an academician in 1840. His career was eminently successful, and marked by various admirable portraits of eminent men. Among these were likenesses of Commander Oliver H. Perry and of Governor William H. Seward, the latter now in the state-house at Albany, also that of Achmet Ben Aman, the commander of the Imam of Muscat's frigate "Sultan," purchased by the common council of New York. He passed several winters in the south painting the portraits of southern celebrities.
