BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE: John Carlin (1813 - 1891) was born in Philadelphia. He was a deaf mute, and one of sixteen original students, he graduated in 1825 from the Pennsylvania Institute for the Deaf and Dumb. This strongly influenced the course of his life, and he became an advocate supporting the cause of deaf and mute people. He was a writer of some note, penning many poems. However, it was in his painting that he truly made his mark, and he exhibited at the National Academy, the Pennsylvania Academy, the American Institute, and many other important venues. He died in New York City at the age of 77. His works grace most important collections of portrait miniatures, and are in many major museums.
