(fl. 1829-1842)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Born in 1793, he practised in Cork for some time, where he won repute as a portrait painter. He exhibited two portraits in the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1829, and soon afterwards went to London. Portraits by him were in the British Institution and the Royal Academy in 1834, 1837, 1838 and 1842. One of "John Ayrton Paris, M.D.," exhibited in the Academy in 1838, and engraved by S. Bellin, is in the Royal College of Physicians, London; and a portrait of "Rear-Admiral Sir William Parry," also engraved by S. Bellin in 1839, is in the Royal Naval College, Greenwich.
