JARVIS, John Wesley, artist, born in South Shields. England, in 1780; died in New York city in 1840. He came to Philadelphia in 1785, and began, with but little instruction, as a portrait painter, but, although self-taught, was one of the first artists in the United States to give attention to the study of art-anatomy, he became popular, and his portraits, which were executed chiefly in New York and the southern cities, were numerous and often effective. His works include likenesses of Commander Isaac Hull, Commander William Bainbridge, Commander Thomas McDonough, Governor DeWitt Clinton, John Randolph, Bishop Benjamin Moore, and Fitz-Greene Halleck. His portraits are agreeable in color, and valuable for seizing characteristic traits.
