PRICHARD, CHRISTOPHER

(fl. c. 1712)

Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A painter who followed his profession in the country, probably in Carlow. On 15th April, 1712, Christopher "Pritchett" was admitted a quarter-brother, temporarily, of the Corporation of Painter-Stayners and Cutlers in Dublin, or Guild of St. Luke. He was to pay two-and-sixpence a quarter, the first quarter to be paid down, "but he not having money about him he promised to pay the Master in a day or two" (MS. Records of the Guild). In the Trinity College Matriculation Lists is the entry, in 1727, of "Thomas Prichard, aged 16, born in Dublin, educated at Carlow, son of Christopher, 'Pictor.'"
