William James Hinchey
Born in Dublin, Ireland, William Hinchey was the second son in a family of eight children. He began painting and drawing as a boy, encouraged by his father, a superintendent of government buildings. By the time he turned twelve, he had earned enough money painting portraits to pay half of his tuition at Trinity College. He later attended Oxford and during the 1840s studied painting in Paris. Accompanied by Bishop Lamy, Hinchey came to the United States in 1854 to assist in the restoration of Spanish missions in New Mexico and to paint pictures for new Catholic churches.
Prevented by ill health from completing this work, in 1856, he established a studio in St. Louis, where he was befriended by the painters Manuel de Franco and George Caleb Gingham and became a successful portraitist. In 1857 he taught art and French at a girls' school in Arcadia Valley, Missouri, while continuing to maintain his St. Louis studio. In 1862 Hinchey went to Washington, D.C., where he painted portraits of well-known statesmen, among them Ulysses S. Grant. He also recorded Civil War battles and activities in forts and camps in Iron County, Missouri, and in St. Louis, publishing his sketches in Frank Leslie's Illustrated News and Harper's Weekly.
Hinchey died in St. Louis after being thrown from a cable car.
William J. Hinchey was listed in "The New-York Historical Society's Dictionary of Artists in America, 1564-1860, by George C. Groce and David H. Wallace (New Haven, CT: Yale University Press, 1957).12
