Philadelphia Lithographers: George Lehman (d. 1870)

George Lehman, landscape painter and lithographer, was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. By 1830 Lehman had made contact with the Philadelphia engraver and lithographer Cephas G. Childs, and Childs published one of Lehman's views of Bethlehem, Penns ylvania. Lehman continued to provide artwork for the firm of Childs and Inman and he took a place in the firm when Henry Inman retired in 1833. The new firm of Childs & Lehman operated until the end of 1834 when Childs sold his part in the firm to Peter S . Duval and Lehman became part of Lehman & Duval. George Lehman continued in this firm until his resignation in 1837, after which he continued to provide occasional illustrations for Duval.
