Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

An artist working in Dublin about 1744. He drew and painted views and "Prospects," and was also a teacher. In an advertisement issued by him from "the Seven Stars in Dame Street opposite the Robin Hood Inn," in November, 1744, he announced that he had opened a drawing and painting school where "he instructed young gentlemen in the several arts of drawing and painting after an easy short method, in such a manner that any person of a middling genius should draw tolerably well in three months time" ("Faulkner's Journal," 17th-21st November, 1744).
