Charles Collins, Painter of Still Life

(d. 1744)

Painter of Still Life

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

An artist mentioned by Walpole ("Anecdotes of Painting") as a painter of "all sorts of fowl and game." He appears to have followed his profession for some time in Ireland, as in a notice of the sale of the collection of Sir Gustavus Hume, Bart., in Dublin, in May, 1786, attention is called to "two pictures most admirably executed, one of live fowl, the other a dead hare, etc., by an Irish master, Collins" ("Dublin Evening Post"). A picture by him of Dead Game is in the National Gallery of Ireland. He died in 1744.
