Edward Lorenzo Percy, Draughtsman

(fl. early 19th century)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He was admitted to the Dublin Society's Schools in 1810, and in 1814 he exhibited two pen-drawings at the Hibernian Society of Artists. He was then living at 13 Duke Street, Grafton Street, and, under the patronage of the Dublin Society, he gave instructions in pen-drawing. In an advertisement that year he informed the nobility and gentry that he would give lessons in figure and ornamental drawing ("Carrick's Morning Post," 13th March, 1814). In 1837 he was at 13 South Cumberland Street. A bog-oak tankard, mounted in silver, by West of Dublin, and carved with a representation of Donnybrook Fair by Lorenzo Percy, was presented by the Marquess of Anglesey to William IV.
