Edmond Ribton Byrne, Landscape and Figure Painter

(fl. 1860-1885)

Landscape and Figure Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A native of Dublin, he practised for some years at 151 Great Brunswick Street, and exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1860 to 1873. He was for a time, from 1866, a teacher in the Dublin Society's School. He was an artist of much natural talent, but his mode of life was hardly conducive to his advancement in his profession. About 1875 he went to London and, having inherited money from an uncle, took the name of De Satur. As "Edmond Byrne De Satur" he exhibited figure subjects and landscapes in the Royal Academy from 1879 to 1885. He died in London, and his remains were brought to Dublin and interred at Glasnevin.
