Object Description: Henry Inman was a noted American portraitist whose subjects ranged from President Martin van Buren to John James Audubon. He also made lithographs, including copies of Charles Bird King’s portraits of Native Americans. Inman was one of the founders of the National Academy of Design in 1825–26 and acted as its first vice-president. This portrait of Mary Kennedy Lewis Ludlow was a gift of Lewis L. Gould when he was Chairman of the Department of History at The University of Texas and his wife Karen Gould, a lecturer in history. The sitter, Mrs. Ludlow, was the great-great-grandmother of Professor Gould. Mrs. Ludlow came from a prominent American family: her great-grandfather was General Francis Lewis, a signer of the Declaration of Independence who fought in the American Revolution.
