This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Most often associated with Connecticut, Philip Hewins is noted for his portraits and religious paintings. He was raised in Blue Hill, Maine, and then moved to the outskirts of Boston where he worked in a dry goods business. From there he relocated to Albany, New York, where he studied portraiture with local artist Reuben Roulery. Soon he was executing portraits of his own.

Hewins moved to Hartford, Connecticut in 1834, and there he had a successful career as a portrait painter until his death in 1850. He was the first portrait artist of note to work in Hartford, and he gave lessons to many aspiring artists.

Several portraits signed or attributed to Hewins are held by the Connecticut Historical Society. His work is also in the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., and the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford.
