Michael Sandford, Drawing Master

(fl. 1814-1821)

Drawing Master

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He had a drawing school and "classical academy" at 45 Henry Street from 1814 to 1821. He was also "mnemonic draughtsman" to the Feinaglian School, and about 1818 published a "Grammar of Methodic and Mnemonic Art" as taught in that institution. He exhibited in 1815 at the Hibernian Society of Artists a picture, "Fitz-James and Roderick Dhu." Henry Brocas's print of "Dan Donnelly, pugilist," was published by him at 45 Henry Street. No notice of him occurs after 1821.
