(1812 - 1867)
James Goodwyn Clonney was active/lived in New York. James Clonney is known for genre-crowds, minature, interior.
James Goodwyn Clonney was a genre and miniature painter born in Liverpool, England in 1812. He came to America as a young man and worked as a lithographic draftsman, possibly in Philadelphia as early as 1830. He attended the National Academy of Design in New York City, and by 1834, was an established miniaturist there. He continued his affiliation with the Academy, exhibiting there frequently as well as at the Apollo Association, the Pennsylvania Academy, and the American Art Union.
He can be said to have turned primarily to genre about 1841, though his painting, "In the Woodshed," at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, dates from as early as 1838. During those years, his home was New Rochelle, New York.
