Landscape and Subject Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was trained in the Dublin Society's School, where he won the first prize for drawing in 1814. He exhibited landscapes and views, including two views of St. Patrick's Cathedral, in the Royal Hibernian Academy, between 1827 and 1830. For his "Interior of the Choir of St. Patrick's Cathedral," a water-colour drawing, he was awarded a premium of three pounds by the Dublin Society. In 1832 he was in London and sent a picture, "The Two Sisters," to the Royal Academy, and two landscapes to the Society of British Artists. In the Academy in 1833 he had two pictures, "Caliban, Trinculo and Stephano," and "L'Ennuyée"; and in 1834 a "Scene on the Shore of the Isle of Wight." He also exhibited at the British Institution in 1832, 1833, and 1834. His name does not occur after 1834. In St. Patrick's Cathedral is a water-colour drawing, "Interior of St. Patrick's," by him.
