HINCKLEY, Thomas Hewes, artist, born in Milton, Massachusetts, in 1813. He was apprenticed while a lad to a trade in Philadelphia, but obtained some little instruction in art at an evening school, during one winter, which was the only training he ever received. At eighteen years of age he went to Boston, and two years later associated himself with a sign and fancy painter, in order to learn the use of colors. He then attempted portraits and landscapes, and, having in 1843 made a successful painting of dogs, determined to devote himself to animal painting, and returned in 1845 to Milton, Massachusetts, where he opened a studio. In 1851 he went to Europe, studied the works of Sir Edward Land-seer and other English and Flemish masters of animal painting, and in 1858 painted two pictures of dogs and game, which were exhibited at the Royal academy of that year, and excited favorable comment. Hinckley rarely exhibits his works in public, but his pictures are popular and numerous.
