Self-taught portrait and genre painter, William F. Cogswell taught himself portrait painting in the 1830's while working in a color factory in Buffalo, New York. He worked as a professional artist in New York City during the 1840's. In 1849 he went to California, but he soon returned to New York City.

Over the next twenty-five years he worked in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, Cincinnati, Louisville (KY), St. Louis, and Washington, D.C.. His best-known work was the portrait of Linc (showing 500 of 2455 characters).
