A miniature portrait of an unknown Gentleman

£ 900

Artist: John Comerford

Wearing a dark brown suit and coat, white waistcoat and tied cravat

Comerford was born at Kilkenny. He gained some knowledge of art from copying the pictures in the collection of the Marquis of Ormonde.

He exhibited in London at the Royal Academy in 1804 and 1809. He was very successful and gained a high reputation as a miniature-painter in Dublin, and had a large and lucrative practice in his art. He particularly excelled in his male portraits, as can be seen in this portrait, which were carefully finished, well expressed, and quiet in colour.
