Landscape and Figure Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Nephew of Nicholas Crowley (q.v.), was born in 1842. He was taught in the Dublin Metropolitan School of Art and won the Taylor Scholarship in 1861. He exhibited landscapes and subject pictures in the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1859 to 1868, and had three landscapes in the exhibition of the Liverpool Society of the Fine Arts in 1860. Several of his pictures were in the Dublin Exhibition of 1865: "The Sentinel," "The Captive Truant," "Meditation," and a "View from Dalkey Island." A good example of his powers is "The Grandmother," a picture in the Dublin Municipal Gallery. He died in Dublin, aged 27, on 18th November, 1869, from the effects of a chill contracted in coming from the theatre, and was buried in Glasnevin Cemetery.
