Henry Graham, Landscape Painter

(fl. 1770-1808)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He entered the Dublin Society's Schools in 1768, and was afterwards a pupil and assistant to Jonathan Fisher (q.v.), the landscape painter, with whom he lived for many years. As a pupil of Fisher he exhibited landscapes at the Society of Artists in William Street in 1777 and 1780. In 1782 he was presented by the Dublin Society with a silver medal for a box of water-colours prepared by him, which he claimed to be superior to those invented by Reeves of London. Jonathan Fisher by his will (dated 16th March, 1803, and proved 8th December, 1809), left Graham twenty pounds a year and all his painting materials and his sketches, drawings, canvasses, etc.; directing him to see after the sale of his collection of pictures. He refers to him as having lived with him for many years. The date of Graham's death is not known; he was living in 1808.
