William Flavelle, Miniature Painter

(fl. c. 1820)

Miniature Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was born in Dublin about 1786 of a French Huguenot family which had settled in the north of Ireland. He was educated at the Dublin Society's School, and worked as a miniature painter in Capel Street and afterwards in Eustace Street, but did not attain any distinction as an artist. A drawing by him of the "South View of the Record Tower in the Lower Castle Yard, Dublin," was engraved by Basire for the "Public Records of Ireland," 1813. In Hardiman's "History of Galway," 1820, is a folding "Plan of the City of Galway" engraved from a drawing by him, and a plate with small views and miscellaneous objects, his own engraving. He was father, by his wife Julia, of Thomas Flavelle and of Henry Erasmus Flavelle, a silversmith, of 43 Grafton Street. His brother Henry was a dentist in D'Olier Street.
