KELLY, THOMAS

(fl. 1799-1827)

Wood Engraver

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

As a student in the Dublin Society's School he obtained prizes for wood engravings in 1802 and 1803. He worked in Dublin down to 1827, and was much employed by the Dublin Society. He was probably the Thomas Kelly who did a poor etching entitled "Union Street, or Ease and Plenty," signed Thos. Kelly del et sculpt, published in 1799 by Williamson, of Grafton Street. It shows a view of College Green as the artist imagined it would appear after the Union.
