This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following text is from the book, Thomas Jefferson Clunie, The Twentieth Century Biographical Dictionary of Notable Americans: Volume II.
Lewis Peter Clover, painter, was born in New York City, February 20 1819, the son of Lewis P. and Bridgette (Murphy) Clover; grandson of Peter and Martha (Cooper) Clover; and a descendant of Peter Clover of Salisbury, England, and of Ashley Cooper.

He was educated in his native city and at the College of St. James near Hagerstown, Maryland.  He studied painting with William Page and Asher B. Durand and established studios in New York City and Baltimore, Maryland.

He was married 7 September 1840, to Sarah Ann, daughter of Matthew Van Benschoten Ackerman. He was elected an associate National Academician in 1840. He exhibited at the Academy The Rejected Picture, The Idle Man, Repose by Moonlight,  and The Phrenologist.

He entered the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal church at the suggestion of Chief Justice Taney, in 1850, and was rector of Grace Memorial Church, Lexington, Virginia, 1851-63; of St. John's Church, Johnston, N.Y., 1855-57; of St. Paul's Church, Springfield, Ill., 1857-65, and of St. Stephen's Church, Milburn, New Jersey, 1873-81.

He edited a reprint of Burnet's Practical Hints on Composition in Painting (1853) and furnished etchings to illustrate the work. He delivered a notable address on the death of Chief Justice Taney, which was published in 1864. He received the honorary degree of D.D. from the University of Kentucky in 1858.

He died at New Hackensack, N.Y., 11 November 1896.
