Bernard M. Tumalti (or Tumulty), Portrait Painter

(fl. 1821-1847)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1825, and in 1827 was settled in Drogheda, where he taught drawing and painted local portraits. He sent portraits to the Hibernian Academy from 1827 to 1831, and from 1844 to 1847. A portrait of "Maurice O'Connell" contributed to the Academy in 1831 was described as "a striking likeness, but badly executed" ("Freeman's Journal," 6th July, 1831).
