This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A prominent banknote engraver, James McDonnough was also a landscape painter, who traveled with Ephraim George Squier to Nicaragua in 1849-50. Upon his return he exhibited exhibited a view of Peru at the National Academy of Design, and in 1888 he exhibited a scene of Central America.

Apparently he had little financial success with his paintings. His living and primary recognition came from his as an engraver of bank notes. From 1887 to 1896, living in New York City, he served as President of the American Bank Note Company.

He died in 1903.
