Portrait of Lieutenant William Hindman Campbell, of the United States Navy

Portrait of Baltimore native William Hindman Campbell (1795 – 1839) in his dress uniform as a lieutenant in the U.S. Navy, probably to celebrate his promotion to that rank in 1826. Campbell was appointed Midshipman on 30 May 1816 however his promising career was cut short when he died on 5 September 1839; he was buried in Brooklyn, New York.

William James Hubard, a noted British-born artist, came to the United States as a young man. Already well-known as a silhouette artist, he studied under Thomas Sully and Gilbert Stuart and established a studio in Baltimore, where he became one of the leading artists in that city. His portraits of Jackson, Calhoun, Clay, Marshall, John Carroll, and others are known to survive in institutions and private collections.

Another portrait of Lt. William Hindman Campbell by Hubard is in the Maryland Historical Society, as are his papers.
