Isaac Vogelsang, Landscape and Cattle Painter

(b. 1688, d. 1753)

Landscape and Cattle Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in Amsterdam in 1688, and studied there under Huchtenberg. He came to London and there painted landscapes, animals and battle-pieces, and was also employed by portrait painters in painting the backgrounds and accessories to their pictures. He was for some time in Ireland in the early part of the eighteenth century, and is said to have been well patronized. Two landscapes by him were in the Harrington collection sold in Dublin in 1832; and a "Landscape and Cattle" was in the collection of J. B. Cuvillie sold in Dublin in 1789 (see page 478). From Ireland Vogelsang went to Scotland, but, not succeeding there, he returned to London, where he died on 1st June, 1753. He painted a portrait of himself, which was engraved by C. Van Noorde, 8vo.
