1820, Jun 161899, Sep 25
an American painter from New Haven, Connecticut. He was the younger brother of artists George Whiting Flagg and Henry Collins Flagg III. His father, Henry Collins Flagg, was a one time mayor of New Haven. The Flagg brothers all studied painting under their famous uncle, Washington Allston, and received some recognition of their own. When he was only sixteen years old, Jared exhibited a portrait of his father in the National Academy and was favorably noticed by the critics. As a young man, Flagg settled in Hartford, Connecticut. However, he moved to New York in 1849 and was soon elected an academician. Jared pursued the study of theology at intervals with his art, and, in 1854, he entered the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal Church.
