From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913
An artist practising in Cork, where he painted local views, mostly in water-colour, but occasionally in oil. He also carried on business as a photographer in Patrick Street, Cork. He exhibited occasionally in the Royal Hibernian Academy between 1854 and 1861. His work was slovenly and of little merit. His son, J. Claude Bosanquet, also painted landscapes.
Charlotte Milligan Fox, sister of the poet Alice Milligan, was a founding member of the Irish Folk Song Society and an indefatigable field collector of Irish traditional music. Her singularly important work on Irish haprers is here presented for the twenty-first century reader. This edition of Annals offers a much greater number of illustrations than were included in the original 1911 publication, a full biographical introduction, an extensive bibliography of the writings of Milligan Fox and an appendix discussing the variant texts of Arthur O’Neills Memoirs.
