Like his friend, fellow miniaturist and sometime business partner, William M.S. Doyle, Henry Williams (1787-1830) excelled in a variety of artistic endeavours and spent his entire career in Boston. Williams worked with Doyle between 1807 and 1815. He exhibited his works at the Boston Athenaeum between 1828 and 1831. (Johnson, p.232.)
