This biography from the Archives of AskART:

From Kate Ogden, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey:

John Alexander McDougall (1811 - 1894 )

John Alexander McDougall was a native of Livingston, New Jersey, but spent most of his career in Newark.  His birth date has been reported as 1810 or 1811.  By 1838 he had a working partnership in Newark with George Ross:  McDougall specialized in miniatures – small portraits about 2-3 inches in size – while Ross painted large oil portraits. The Metropolitan Museum of Art has McDougall’s portrait of Henry Clay, a watercolor miniature on ivory.  Although he lived and worked in Newark, McDougall also maintained a studio in New York City. Several of his children followed their father into careers in the arts.

McDougall began his career as a miniaturist but was later employed as a photographer; he may also have practiced lithography. In addition to portrait miniatures, the artist painted landscapes and large-scale portraits, several of which are now owned by The Newark Museum.
