(fl. 1670-1680)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He was a member of the Corporation of Painter-Stayners and Cutlers, or Guild of St. Luke, in Dublin, and was one of its wardens in 1675. He painted a portrait of Samuel Cotton, cutler, the first Master of the Guild on its foundation in 1760 [sic - 1670?]. The picture formerly hung in the Hall of the Guild in Capel Street. De Melle's name disappears from the list of members after 1680.
