John Samuel Templeton, Lithographic Artist

(fl. 1830-1857)

Lithographic Artist

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was a native of Dublin and became a student in the Dublin Society's Drawing School in 1819. Early in life he went to London and was an exhibitor of landscapes in the Royal Academy from 1830 to 1833, his contributions including "Christ Church Cathedral" in 1830, and "The Quarries, Hill of Howth," in 1832. From 1841 to 1857 he exhibited portraits. He was, however, chiefly employed as a lithographer, and reproduced a number of portraits after pictures and drawings by other artists. His name does not occur after 1857. Among his lithographs are:

Sir John Fox Burgoyne; after a chalk drawing by G. F. Mulvany.

Sir John Franklin.

Sir Peter Hesketh Fleetwood.

Frances Anne Kemble, as Juliet; after John Hayter.

C. J. Blomfield, Bishop of London.

Lord Palmerston; after W. C. Ross, A.R.A.

Sir P. B. V. Broke; after W. C. Ross, A.R.A.

The American ship "Edward," wrecked on the North Bull in November, 1825. Drawn and lithographed by Templeton, and published by Engelmann.
