Louis Werner, Portrait Painter

(d. 1901)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was a native of Alsace and made his art studies in Paris, where he was a fellow-pupil with Henner, who came from the same part of Alsace. Receiving some commissions to paint portraits he came to Dublin, and, having married, settled there. He painted portraits for some years, and was an exhibitor in the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1860. But eventually, chiefly on account of his health, which interfered with his working at his easel, he took to photography and established a successful business in Grafton Street, afterwards carried on by his son. He died on 12th December, 1901.
