FRITH, —

(fl. c. 1840)

Silhouettist

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

An artist of this name was working in Cork and Limerick about 1840, chiefly as a silhouettist. With other practitioners of his form of art he moved about from place to place; he was in Scotland about 1830, and did many silhouette portraits there. His portraits are generally small full-length figures, painted or cut out in black paper, and relieved with gold powder. He also did caricatures.
