Trevor Thomas Fowler, Portrait Painter

(fl. 1830-1844)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Although this artist seems to have enjoyed a fair practice in Dublin as a portrait painter, but little is now known of him or of his works. He first appears as an exhibitor of a portrait in the Royal Academy in 1829, and at the Royal Hibernian Academy in 1830, and between that year and 1835 he contributed thirty-five portraits. He was for some time in Paris, and in 1843 exhibited in Dublin "La Jeune Artiste," "La Petite Vendangeuse" and "Un Malheur en Route." The first of these was won as a prize in the Royal Irish Art Union by Lady Emma Vesey, Abbeyleix. Fowler exhibited again in 1844, and probably died about that year, as his name does not appear afterwards.
