Luce Artist Biography
During his lifetime, John Cheney was known as one of the finest engravers working in America. Between 1820 and 1850, his lithographs appeared in numerous "gift books"---lavishly bound collections of poetry and prose that were published annually. His brother, Seth Wells Cheney, was also an artist, and their father, Timothy Cheney, was a successful clockmaker.
