This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Jessie Atwood is perhaps best known for his rendering of Abraham Lincoln, executed in Springfield, IL in 1860 (see Illinois State Journal, 26 October 1860 and 1 November 1860).  Although the last known portrait of a clean-shaven Lincoln is the excellent rendering by G. P. A. Healy, the traveling-portraitist, Atwood - upon learning that Lincoln had grown a beard following the November election of 1860 - would quickly add whiskers onto his portrait of the new President.  (The Atwood portrait returned to Illinois at least once, showing in the "Exhibition of the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln: Painted from Life" at Young's Art Galleries, 17 North State Street, Chicago, from 10 to 16 February 1916.)

Footnotes of AskART biography of R.A. Clifford by Michael Preston Worley, Ph.D., Art Historian, Chicago.

Biography from The State Museum of Pennsylvania:
Itinerant painter from 1828 through 1854. Worked in Deerfield, Mass.; Rhode Island; Richmond, Va.; Philadelphia, Pa.; New Orleans, La.; Monterey, Mexico; St. Louis; Louisville and Cincinnati. Resided in Philadelphia from 1849 through 1854, the end of his known career.
