Martin Cregan, Portrait Painter

(b. 1788, d. 1870)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Martin Cregan. Drawing, by Sir George Hayter; in National Gallery of Ireland.

Was born, according to his own account, in the county of Meath in 1788. He never, even to his own family, referred to his parentage, but he is said to have been brought up by foster-parents named Creggan, of Martinstown, near Summerhill, in Meath. He received the name of Martin Creggan, which he afterwards altered to Cregan. He was cared for by the Stewarts of Killymoon, County Tyrone, in whose service he was as a boy; and showing a remarkable aptitude for drawing he was sent to Dublin and entered as a student in the Dublin Society's School. He won medals for his drawings in 1806 and 1807, and showed such promise that he was sent to London and placed as a pupil in the studio of Sir Martin Archer Shee at the expense ot Henry Stewart of Trycallen, second son of James Stewart of Killymoon, who also financed him until he could earn for himself. He was highly thought of by Shee, whose first and only pupil he was, and numbered among his friends Constable, Hayter, Landseer and others of the principal artists of the day.

In 1812 he made his first appearance as an exhibitor in the Royal Academy. He remained in London until 1822, when he returned to Dublin, and in the following year, having already made a name for himself as a portrait painter, he was chosen as one of the original members o the Royal Hibernian Academy. He contributed to its first exhibition in 1826, and was a regular exhibitor until his retirement in 1859. On the resignation of William Cuming, Cregan was elected in October, 1832, President of the Academy, a position he occupied for twenty-three years. In 1856, when the dissensions among the Academicians culminated in a schism, Cregan, who had in vain urged the reform and efficient management of the institution and had sided with M. A. Hayes and those working for that end, incurred the hostility of the opposing party, chiefly of the older members, and was called on to resign the Presidency. This he refused to do; but on the termination of his year of office he was not re-elected, George Petrie being chosen in his place on the 17th October, 1857. He did not exhibit after 1859.

Martin Cregan. Chalk drawing, by Himself; in possession of Miss Cregan, Morehampton Road, Dublin.

Cregan, on his return from London in 1822, had his studio for a time in the house of his patrons, the Stewarts, at No. 6 Leinster Street; afterwards he resided for many years—from 1834 to 1849—at No. 4 Smith's Buildings, Ely Place, and subsesequently until 1854 at No. 26 Kildare Street. On his retirement he moved to 109 St. Stephen's Green, and later, when old age prevented him from making much at his profession, and he still had to support a large and burdensome family, he went to 22 Lennox Street. He practised his art until the last, and at the time of his death was engaged upon an altar-piece. He died in Lennox Street on the 10th December, 1870, aged 82 years, and was buried at Mount Jerome on the 14th.

During his long career Cregan occupied the foremost position as a portrait painter in Ireland until old age, failing sight, and the rivalry of a younger painter, Catterson Smith, gradually lessened his practice. He painted many persons of distinction, and held the post of Portrait Painter to the Lord Lieutenant. His portraits were esteemed as excellent and faithful likenesses, and though he never attained any brilliancy in his art his pictures are marked by feeling and refinement, and a good sense of colour.

Cregan married in London in 1816 Jane, daughter of Henry Schwertzel, a native of Hesse Cassel, employed in the Royal household. By her he had sixteen children. His fourth son, William Stewart Cregan, was a student in the Royal Dublin Society's School in 1846, and exhibited in the Royal Hibernian Academy, but did not ultimately adopt the profession of a painter. Mrs. Cregan died at 22 Lennox Street on 30th August, 1876.
