Simon Pine, Miniature Painter

(d. 1772)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was son of John Pine the engraver, and brother of Robert Edge Pine, painter. He practised as a miniature painter at Bath, and was in Dublin from 1762 to 1771, living in Hog Hill. Pasquin says that he practised also in Connaught. Nothing is known of his work in Ireland, and his name does not appear in any of the exhibitions of the Society of Artists in Dublin. He exhibited miniatures from 1768 to 1771 at the Society of Artists in London, and at the Royal Academy.

He died in 1772, but whether in Dublin or elsewhere is unknown.
