This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Jasper Lawman was born April 2, 1825 in Xenia, Ohio (not Cleveland).  Married Nancy Lenore Ward August 18, 1863 and died 1 April 1, 1906 in Pittsburg.  They had 7 daughters, but I can only find record of 6.   I know they had 7 as my great-grandmother always bragged of being the 7th daughter of a 7th daughter.   The girls were Myra Mason Lawman Howarth, born 21 Aug 1878 (my great-grandmother), Xenia Mae Lawman, born 1 May 1875, Stella Lawman, born 4 Aug 1872 (published poet), Lucy Lawman, born 18 June 1868, Mollie Lawman (Broadway actress) born 5 Oct 1865 and Maude Louise Lawman, born 24 July 1864. 

Jasper won a Proctor & Gamble award to study art in Paris in the late 1800's.  He won the gold medal at the Paris Exposition.  Upon returning to the US he settled and made his art studio in the current location of Triangle Park at the junction of Monogahela & Allegheny Rivers.

Biography from Butler Institute of American Art:
Born in Xenia, Ohio, Jasper Lawman apparently studied or exhibited in Cincinnati in 1839.   He studied in France from 1859-1860.   From 1846 to his death, he lived in Pittsburgh.

His painting The Coal Tipple illustrates the common aesthetic influence which dominated most of the pre-Civil War artists, that of the Dusseldorfian manner with its precise clarity and over luminosity.  The scene is typical of the geography and environment of Western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and South Eastern Ohio and undoubtedly represents an actual locale within that area.

The owner of this painting stated that a Pittsburgh dealer told him that Lawman had worked with David Blythe and there was a portrait of Blythe signed by Lawman.

Submitted February 2004 by Becky Davis.  The source is a file by Clyde Singer, who was the co-director at the Butler Institute for about 50 years, and a letter from Don Lord who sold the Butler Institute the painting in the collection by Lawman.
