WYKE, ROBERT TITUS

(b. about 1790, d. about 1870)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in London, the son of a Dutch diamond-setter who found employment in Dublin, and settled there. He painted miniatures, and did drawings in water-colour; but though very industrious and fond of his art he did not achieve success as an artist, and was chiefly employed as a drawing-master in and around Wexford, where he resided in Slaney Street. He married a Miss Hatchell, and was father of Anne Wyke, who became the wife of S. Catterson Smith, P.R.H.A. In his old age he lived with his daughter and son-in-law in St. Stephen's Green, and died there about 1870, aged about 80.
