William Henry Rinehart, American (1825-1874)
MSA SC 4680-20-0140
Well-known American neo-classical sculptor William Henry Rinehart was born on a farm in Union Bridge, Maryland. Apprenticed as a boy to a Baltimore stone carver, Rinehart became a talented sculptor, and was noticed by Maryland art patron William T. Walters. The Peabody Collection includes the finest and most comprehensive collection of Rinehart sculptures in the country.
In "A Catalogue of the Work of William Henry Rinehart," by Marvin Chauncey Ross and Anna Wells Ruteledge, this work is mistakenly described as Jessie Tyson- born 1866, Daughter of Richard W. Tyson of Baltimore Maryland, as an infant, full-length, lying on a pillow.
In fact, Jesse Tyson Jr. (a boy) was born to Richard W. Tyson and Julia McHenry in 1864. His parents went to Europe presumably in 1864 when they gave up their Baltimore residence. Jesse returned to Maryland and is listed in the 1900 census as residing in Baltimore County at the home of Edward A. Marshall. His occupation is listed as "soldier in the British In." His maternal grandfather was General Benjamin C. Howard.
