Draughtsman

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Of this artist nothing is known beyond the mention of him by Pasquin, as follows: "A professor of drawing in Cork; the only work extant by him is a bold, but imperfect, engraving of Anthonio, a Venetian sailor who was robbed of his property by some loose women of the town while his vessel lay at Kinsale, which had such an effect upon his brain that he became distracted, and died in that city about the year 1782." An impression of this print, an etching, 13 ¾ by 10 ¼ inches, is in the British Museum.
