Looking for information on Charles Osgood

Does anyone have any information on Charles Osgood (1809-1890) a colonial American portrait painter?  According to Wikipedia, his father, Nathaniel Osgood, was a shipmaster of Salem.  He had a son, Charles Stuart Osgood, born 1839,

Today's History of Massachusetts piece on Slavery in colonial America showed a portrait of Governor Winthrop painted by Charles Osgood some time in the 19th century.

I noticed that there are some Osgood profiles on WikiTree and thought it would be interesting to add a profile for Charles but I was unable to find much information on him on the net.

Thanks!
