Henry John Noblett, Landscape Painter

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in 1812 in Cork, the son of George Noblett, a hosier on the Grand Parade. He practised in Cork as a landscape painter both in oil and water-colour. Going to London in 1831 he sent five drawings of South of Ireland scenery to the British Institution that year, and from 1832 to 1835 was an exhibitor at the Royal Academy, the Society of British Artists, and the New Society of Painters in Water-colours. He was elected a Member of the latter body in 1833, but he resigned in 1835 and returned to Cork. He sent two landscapes to the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1844. He was then residing at No. 29 Grand Parade, where his two sisters were carrying on their father's business as hosiers and haberdashers. Three illustrations from his drawings are in Hall's "Ireland, its Scenery and Character." He did not use his first name; he usually appears as "H. John" or "John."
