William Smith Jewett, whose name is often confused with William Jewett, became a prominent American portrait painter during the mid-1800s. He was born in South Dover, New York in 1812, and was painting portraits there by 1833.  Jewett studied at the National Academy of Design, enrolling in the Antique Class in 1838, and the following spring he began exhibiting portraits at the Academy's annual exhibitions. Although he is best known for portraiture, he occasionally painted landscapes as well (showing 500 of 1922 characters).
