William Dixon, Portrait and Miniature Painter

(fl. 1791-1818)

Portrait and Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Perhaps a son of Thomas Dixon, hosier, of Cork Hill, and brother of the foregoing John, Samuel and Thomas Dixon. He was living at 52 Stephen Street from 1791 to 1795, and 210 Great Britain Street from 1796 to 1798. He was probably the William Dixon who was living at 43 Cuffe Street in 1815, and afterwards, in 1818, at 29 Dawson Street, where he combined the business of a haberdasher with that of a portrait and miniature painter. From this double occupation it would seem probable that he was related to the other artists of his name.
