(b. 1852, d. 1876)

Subject Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, on 6th April, 1852, the eldest daughter of Thomas Herbert Maguire (q.v.). She painted chiefly subjects of child life which she depicted with much feeling and refinement. She began to exhibit at the Society of Artists in 1868 at the age of 19 [?], and her works also appeared in the Royal Academy and at the Society of Lady Artists of which she was member. She was an industrious worker, and had already gained a position as an artist, when her death at the age of 23, on the 30th November, 1875, terminated her short but promising career.
