GRAHAM, WILLIAM

(fl. c. 1770)

Sculptor

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He was an apprentice to Van Nost (q.v.), who in 1769 brought to the notice of the Dublin Society "the very extraordinary genius for sculpture and the Fine Arts in general in William Graham, a poor country boy of the age of sixteen, who is now in his apprenticeship." The Society accordingly voted him ten pounds towards his maintenance and clothing. The next year, 1770, Graham exhibited before the Society a bas-relief in marble. Nothing however appears as to his subsequent career.
