Jennys, family of American painters, fl. 1770–1810. Little is known of the Jennys family. William Jennys and his son Richard painted portraits in Massachusetts and Connecticut. These are classed as primitives in style, yet they exhibit sophisticated psychological understanding of the sitters. William Jennys's portraits of the Bacon family (1795) are in the Rockefeller Folk Art Collection, Williamsburg, Va.
