Charles MacKenzie, Landscape Painter

(fl. c. 1770-1801)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was a student in the Dublin Society's Schools in 1769, and afterwards practised as a landscape painter in Dublin for many years. He sent fourteen landscapes to the exhibition in the Parliament House in 1801. He was then living at Harold's Cross. His talents were considerable, but he was indolent and only worked when he felt inclined; so that he lived in poverty, often wanting the common necessaries of life.
