This biography from the Archives of AskART:
James Morgan Lewin   (1836 – 1877)

James Morgan Lewin was born in Swansea, Massachusetts, in 1836.  He began his career as an apprentice at the Gorham Company in Providence, Rhode Island, learning engraving.  At the close of his apprenticeship, he learned to paint photographs and was engaged by Manchester & Chapin, prominent photographers of their time.

Lewin later turned his talents to landscape painting.  In 1858 he taught at the Charles Field Street Family and Day School.  He is known to have exhibited at the Boston Athenaeum in 1859 and 1860.  He was active in Providence where he was a member of the Providence Art Club until 1864 when he moved to Boston. Between 1875 and 1877 he showed his work at the Boston Art Club’s exhibitions.

Lewin died in Milton, Massachusetts in 1877.
