WILKINSON, JAMES

(fl. 1773-1801)

Draughtsman

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

His father was William Wilkinson of Chequer Lane, a print-seller and publisher, whose name appears on several Dublin mezzotints, and a picture-cleaner; in the Blue-coat School, Dublin, is a receipt from him for cleaning Michael Mitchell's portrait of "Dean Drelincourt" in 1754. James Wilkinson exhibited with the Society of Artists in Dublin in 1773, sending six landscapes in water-colour, his address being given as "at Mr. Wilkinson's, Chequer Lane." He also exhibited a drawing of "Fruit," in 1801, from 64 Exchequer Street.
