John Wesley Jarvis Portrait Artist


This is an interesting ad of Jarvis from an 1820 New York newspaper. See Carick for a good write-up. She says she has never seen a silhouette by him. Have you?

I went thru my papers and found out it was from an 1820 NYC paper, National Advocate. I have updated my tiny "items for sale" page and listed some artists' ads there.
