This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, James Lambdin became a skilled mid-19th century portrait painter of prominent persons including politicians and U.S. Presidents Lincoln and Grant. He also did portraits of soldiers including Arkansas writer Charles Fenton Mercer Noland in his military uniform.

At age 16, Lambdin studied in Philadelphia with miniaturist Edward Miles and then for three years with Thomas Sully. In 1826, he returned to Pittsburgh to become a portrait painter, and opened a museum and art gallery patterned after that of Charles Willson Peale in Philadelphia. Faced with diminished interest in his portraits and the museum, he moved to Louisville, Kentucky for 5 years and from there, traveled in the South including to Arkansas for portrait commissions.

In 1837, he opened a studio in Philadelphia and worked there until his death in 1889. From 1845 to 1864, he was Director of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and from 1861 to 1865, was professor of fine arts at the University of Pennsylvania.
