This biography from the Archives of AskART:
From Philadelphia, Henry Cariss became noted for his oil paintings of figural subjects and historical subjects and for etchings. Early in his career, he was a scene painter in several Philadelphia theatres. In the history of the Philadelphia Sketch Club, of which he was a member from 1878 to his death in 1903, it is recorded that Cariss, "in his early 30s, was a most popular member of the Club, with a good singing voice, which he was always willing to inflict on social gatherings." In 1883, he was elected President of the Sketch Club and served for five years. He was also a member of the Philadelphia Society of Etchers and a founder of the Philadelphia Art Club.

His most famous work, "Oath of Allegiance at Valley Forge", was both painted and etched. He was also a stain glass designer and for a period of time ran the Centuries Stained Glass Company in Philadelphia.

William Patterson & David Zellin, "Thomas Eakins and His Fellow Artists at the Philadelphia Sketch Club"
