— Rogers, Landscape Painter

(fl. early 18th century)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

One of the earliest recorded landscape painters in Ireland. He was a native of Cork where he resided and practised early in the eighteenth century. Nothing is now known of his pictures, but he does not appear to have been an artist of any great merit. A notice of his work in "Bolster's Magazine," 1827, says: "Whenever he is found to produce a picture better than usual it is attributed to his pupil Butts, and when his works are pointed out in collections ..... they have darkened into dense masses that conceal whatever merit they might have originally possessed."
