This biography from the Archives of AskART:
English sculptor and painter, William John Coffee was born in England (1774). He began sculpting in terra cotta, from 1795 to 1816 in Derby and London. He exhibited a number of times at the Royal Academy. In 1816 Coffee came to America, settling in New York City for the next decade.

He executed a bust of Hugh Williamson (1816), which is now at the New York Historical Society. In 1817 he exhibited at the American Academy two terra cotta animals, an "Infant Morpheus in Terra Cotta," and several paintings of animals and dead game. He rendered a bust of Thomas Jefferson (April 1818), whom he kept in contact with following the completion of the portrait bust. He also executed busts of his daughter Cornelia Jefferson Randolph and granddaughter.

Coffee was listed in New York directories as a sculptor in 1821-22 and as a portrait painter from 1821 to 1826, though he also visited Charleston, S.C. in 1821 and was in Newark, N.J. in 1824. From 1827 to 1845 he lived in Albany, New York, where he executed several bas-reliefs for the City Hall.
