DIXON, THOMAS

(fl. 1740-1763)

Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Son of Thomas Dixon of Cork Hill, hosier, and brother of Samuel and John Dixon (q.v.). After his father's death in 1758 he continued the business on Cork Hill, and at his house was published in 1763 his brother John's mezzotint of Lord Taaffe. He himself adventured as an engraver, and some etched landscapes by him published in 1760, T. Dixon del. et sc. Dublin, are known; and in the "Universal History," published by George Faulkner in 1744, is a plate of "The Tower of Babel," engraved by him. He married in 1756 Elizabeth Jones.
