Wyndham Madden, Portrait Painter

(fl. 1766-1775)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

The first mention of him occurs in 1766 when he was presented by the Dublin Society with a bounty of £4 11s. for a landscape painted by him. In 1768 he was living in Moore Street and sent four portraits in oils and crayons to the exhibition of the Society of Artists in William Street, and in 1774 he contributed three portraits. A portrait by him of "James, Lord Lifford, Lord Chancellor of Ireland," was engraved in mezzotint by W. Dickinson and published by Madden himself at No. 29 Moore Street in 1775. He held an appointment as one of the principal clerks in the office of the Secretary to the Commissioners of Revenue from about 1768 to 1774.
