Samuel Woodhouse, Portrait Painter

(fl. c. 1809-1815)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Nothing is known of this artist except as a contributor of portraits in oil to the various exhibitions in Dublin from 1809 to 1812, and of landscapes in 1815. In 1812 he was in London. In the British Museum are two sheets of soft-ground etchings of figures and animals, Sam Woodhouse fecit, apparently pages from a drawing book; and in the Victoria and Albert Museum an oil portrait of "the Rev. Chauncey Hare Townshend and his sister Charlotte, afterwards Mrs. Elrington"; and one of "Henry Hare Townshend."
