NEWTON, HENRY

(fl. 1847-1854)

Landscape Painter in Water-colour

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

An English artist who settled in Dublin and began to exhibit at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1847, contributing, at intervals, until 1853. He lived for some years at Booterstown. A number of water-colours by him, the bequest in 1855 of Captain G. A. Taylor, are in the National Gallery of Ireland. These include, "A View of the Sugar Loaf near Bray," and "The Glen," both exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1856, after his death; a "View near Howth," and "Waterfall near Esna Larach, Co. Antrim." He appears to have died about 1854.
