JONES, WILLIAM

(fl. c. 1746-7)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was working in Dublin in the first half of the eighteenth century. Giles King (q.v.) engraved four views after paintings by him, viz: "A View of the Blackrocks," "A View of Hoth," "The Salmon Leap at Leixlip," and "Powerscourt Waterfall." These were published in 1744-5. King also engraved in 1745 a "Portrait of Thomas Carter, Master of the Rolls," painted the same year; and Andrew Miller scraped two mezzotint portraits of "Charles Lucas," one of them inscribed Wm. Jones pinxit 1747. He died in 1747. In February of that year Samuel Dixon (q.v.) announced in an advertisement that he had for sale in his picture-shop in Capel Street "several paintings, both landscape and history, done by the late ingenious Mr. Jones."
