Stephen Crowe, Miniature Painter

(b. 1812, d. ?)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in Kilkenny in 1812. He entered the schools of the Dublin Society in 1825, and after studying there for a short time commenced practice as a miniature painter in Grafton Street, whence he moved in 1828 to No. 16 Suffolk Street. He was a constant exhibitor in the Royal Hibernian Academy from its opening in 1826 until 1848, and seems to have enjoyed a considerable practice. His output as a miniature painter was very large; much of it of indifferent quality, but occasionally he reached a higher level with miniatures well modelled and carefully painted. A THOMAS CROWE was also working as a miniature painter at 16 Suffolk Street.
