ANDREWS, Joseph, engraver, born in Hingham, Massachusetts, 17 August 1806; died there, 9 May 1873. He was apprenticed to Abel Bowen, a wood-engraver of Boston, in 1821, and learned copper-plate engraving from Hoogland. He went into business with his brother, a printer, at Lancaster, in 1827, but in 1835 went to London and studied under Joseph Goodyear. There he executed the plate of "Annette de l'Arbre," after West, and in Paris engraved the head of Franklin, painted by Duplessis. In 1840 he visited Paris a second time, and engraved six portraits for the historical gallery at Versailles, published under the auspices of Louis Philippe. After that he went to Florence and began the plate of the "Duke of Urbino," after Titian. His best-known engravings made in America are from Stuart's head of Washington and Rothermel's "Plymouth Rock in 1620." He engraved portraits from paintings by Trumbull, G. P. A. Healy, and others, of Oliver Wolcott, John Q. Adams, Zachary Taylor, Jared Sparks, Amos Lawrence, and James Graham, and several ideal scenes after representative American painters.
