PHILLIPS, PEREGRINE

(fl. 1771-1784)

Draughtsman

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He exhibited drawings in chalk at the Free Society in London between 1771 and 1776, and appears also to have worked in Ireland. "Faulkner's Journal" announced the death at Milltown of "Peregrine Phillips, an eminent artist," on 30th March, 1784.

A PEREGRINE PHILLIPS, JUN., exhibited an engraved gem at the Royal Academy in 1782. He was probably the Peregrine Phillips who had "An Address to the good people of Ireland" in the "Hibernian Magazine" for April, 1789, on the subject of a Bill brought in by Pitt relating to the Customs and smuggling. In this, dated from Wright's Coffee House, Soho Square, he styles himself "an honorary member of the Dublin Volunteer Corps," and "an obscure individual, a native of London."
