Samuel W. Rowse
Samuel Worcester Rowse (January 29, 1822 – 1901) was an American artist.
His more famous works, mostly drawings in black and white, and in crayon, include:
- Ralph Waldo Emerson (the drawing here)
- Nathaniel Hawthorne
- Arthur Hugh Clough
- Henry David Thoreau
- Fanny Appleton Longfellow
- Howard Dwight
Copies of his lithograph of The Resurrection of Henry Box Brown at Philadelphia were used by anti-slavery activists prior to and during the American Civil War (1861–1865) to raise funds for the Underground Railroad and other anti-slavery campaigns. Henry Brown, a slave, had escaped from Richmond, Virginia in 1849 by having himself shipped overland express to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a small box, where he was received by Reverend James Miller McKim and other members of the Anti-Slavery Society.
