P. Dillon, Miniature Painter

(fl. 1802-1815)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Worked in Dublin in the early part of the nineteenth century as a miniature painter. He exhibited four miniatures in the Parliament House in 1802, and three at Allen's in Dame Street in 1804. He did not again exhibit until 1815, when he had one miniature at the Hibernian Society of Artists. After that his name no longer appears. A "Portrait of Sir John Newport" was drawn and etched by him; and one of "The Hon. Christopher Hely-Hutchinson," engraved in stipple, is inscribed Engraved by P. Dillon miniature Painter. In the Franks collection in the British Museum is a book-plate of "Michael H. Fitzpatrick, Dillon sc."
