Robert Wogan, Miniature Painter

(fl. 1768-1782)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

He combined the business of a jeweller with that of a miniature painter, doing "likenesses in hair from life, or pictures and designs for mourning rings, lockets or bracelets." In 1768 he was in the Upper Blind Quay, and in 1771 in Exchange Alley, whence he moved in 1773 to Parliament Street. He exhibited regularly at the Society of Artists in Dublin from 1768 to 1775, his contributions being portraits and designs in hair and miniatures. His name does not occur after 1782.
