FORSTER, JOHN

(fl. 1773-1780)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He studied in Dublin and in Paris, and did portraits and landscapes in crayons and black chalk. In 1773 he was living in Golden Lane and exhibited with the Society of Artists in William Street in that year and in 1774, 1775 and 1777. In 1780 he was at 36 Stafford Street, and sent seven landscapes in chalk to the exhibition in William Street. After that date his name no longer occurs. Pasquin gives his name as "Foster"; but it appears as "Forster" in the Exhibition catalogues.
