This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Founder of the D.W. Kellogg Lithography firm of Hartford, Connecticut about 1830, Daniel Wright Kellogg was primarily active in Hartford, although he did spend some time in New York City (1847-48 and 1855-56).  It is reported that he went West in 1836, but the firm carried his name until 1842, when it changed to E.B. and E.C. Kellogg for his brothers, Edmund Burke and Elijah Chapman Kellogg.

The Kellogg Firm was known for prints of sentimental genre subjects and for landscapes, which became very popular in the early to late 19th century.  In most cases, the prints were intended to be framed or hung as they were fairly large in size.  One of Daniel Kellogg's earliest landscape prints was A View of the North River, done shortly after he opened his business, and depicting the southern end of the Hudson River.  It was said that Kellogg was very astute about the popularity of the Hudson River School artists led by Thomas Cole, and utilized that subject matter. 

Sometimes Kellogg and his brothers worked directly with artists, rather than copying and combining subject matter of several completed paintings or drawings.  One of the last prints that Daniel Kellogg lithographed before he went west to Wisconsin was Sag Harbor, 1840, then a bustling whaling port.  The artist was Orlando Hand Bears.

Daniel Kellogg died in 1874 in Jefferson, Wisconsin.
