In 1830 Jarvis's name appears in the New Orleans directory, and his stay in the city at that time must have been longer than usual. A great conversationalist he associated with such men as Irving, Van Wyke and Verplank but in his latter years sank into obscurity. He died in extreme poverty at the house of his sister Mrs. Childs. Jarvis's portraits are of great merit and he was one of the first to make an artistic study of anatomy in this country. He worked with great rapidity and with the assistance of Inman sometimes finished a portrait in a day. 1. Portrait of the Artist's sister. Rhode Island School of Design. Jarvis--Continued: 89 2.
