— Billing, Portrait Painter

(fl. c. 1760)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Pasquin mentions "Billing, portrait painter in oils," as flourishing in Dublin about 1760; and also says that "he had been improved in London by Goupy." Nothing, however, is known of him or of his works. He probably belonged to the family of Billing, who were goldsmiths and jewellers in Dublin. A William Billing was a pupil and a prize-winner in the Dublin Society's drawing school in 1753 and 1754.
