(c. 1845)


From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

A Dublin engraver who resided at 17 Parkgate Street. In 1844 his engraving of "A Terrier and Rat," after Charles Grey, won the prize of thirty pounds given by the Royal Irish Art Union for the best line-engraving. A "Portrait of Daniel O'Connell, in his robes as Lord Mayor," was done by him in etching and mezzotint after a picture by Charles Grey. It is inscribed, "Printed and Published as the Act directs, 12th March, 1845, by James Peterkin Parkgate Street, Dublin."
