Clarke, George Frederick (1823 – 1906)

George Frederick Clarke was born at Carrick-on-Suir, Co.Tipperary. He commenced his art career in Dublin, and from 1845 to 1848 exhibited portraits in the Royal Hibernian Academy. Anxious to advance himself he left Ireland and settled in London, where he exhibited in the Royal Academy and at the Society of British Artists between 1868 and 1872. A painter of considerable talent, he for a time enjoyed a fair practice; but during the last twenty years of his life he did more copying than original work, and was much employed by Sir Francis Grant in making copies of his pictures for engravers. Eventually, through failure of his sight, he had to abandon work. Ref: Strickland (1913)

Conor, William OBE RHA RUA ROI (1881 – 1968)

William Conor was a Belfast born artist. Celebrated for his warm and sympathetic portrayals of working-class life in Ulster, he studied at the Government School of Design in Belfast in the 1890s. From the Old Lodge Road area of north Belfast, the son of a wrought-iron worker, his artistic talents were recognized at the early age of ten when a teacher of music, Louis Mantell, noticed the merit of his chalk drawings and arranged for him to attend the College of Art. He initially worked as a commercial artist, before being commissioned during WW.I. by the British government to produce official records of soldiers and munitions workers. He moved to London in 1920 and there met and socialised with such artists as Sir John Lavery and Augustus John. He exhibited at the RA in 1921 and in Dublin at the RHA from 1918 to 1967, showing there nearly 200 works. Conor was one of the first Academicians when the Belfast Art Society became the Ulster Academy of Arts in 1930. He became an Associate RHA in 1938 and a full member in 1946. Exhibitions at the Victor Waddington Galleries were held in 1944 and 1948. In 1952 he was awarded the OBE and in 1957 he was elected President of the RUA – an office he held until 1964. More than 50 works of his in crayon and watercolour are in the permanent collections of the Ulster Museum.

Conway, Stephen


Steve Conway is a self-taught landscape artist living and working in County Cork.
His interest in painting was sparked when as a 9-year-old he was given a painting by numbers set by his mother. He was so pleased with the result and the bug had really bitten. Over the years he experimented with acrylics, watercolour, pastels, charcoal etc. before settling on oils as his preferred medium. As his work improved he plucked up the courage to ask his local credit union to hang some of his paintings and to his surprise almost everything sold. This was the push that he needed and since then, amongst other things, he has gone on to develop a very successful YouTube Art Tutorial site with almost 11,000 subscribers: Easy Oil Painting

Stephen’s work is available for sale on his Etsy site here: Steves-Oil-Paintings and on his own website (above)
he also welcomes commissions – contact details on his website.

Cook, Charles Henry (c.1830 – 1906)  

Was born at Bandon, Co.Cork. He painted in Cork, portraits, scenes of Irish life and landscapes. In 1864 he exhibited two pictures in the Royal Hibernian Academy, “The Irish Match-maker,” and “Little Peggy.” In noticing his work the “Freeman’s Journal” expressed the opinion that he had great power and gave promise of a future. He again exhibited in 1865. After practising for some years in Cork, where he lived with his widowed mother in Sunday’s Well Avenue, he went to England. In 1870 he was in Bath and sent a picture to the Royal Hibernian Academy. Of his subsequent career, no details are known and he died at Scarborough about 1906.

Cooney, John


John Cooney lives and works in Carrickfergus, Co.Antrim. He was born in Newry, Co. Down but has lived most of his life close to Belfast. He attended art college in Belfast and Manchester, achieving a first class honours degree in illustration.

While at college, John won first prize at the North West Artists exhibition sponsored by BP. After college he began exhibiting his paintings with Tom Caldwell Galleries and won awards at the Royal Ulster Academy (best painting as voted by the public and UTV award). Despite his success in painting, he began working in advertising which left no time for painting.

After further career moves in graphic design, he taught various art classes and began teaching in local primary schools. However, he has now given up teaching in order to devote himself entirely to painting. He paints in both oil and watercolours, depending on the subject and has no preference. He paints ordinary people in their environments and always tries to make the commonplace interesting.

John welcomes commission work and can be contacted through his website.

Coulter, William Alexander (1849 – 1936)

William Coulter was born in Glenariff, on the north-east Antrim coast where his father was a captain in the Coastguard. At the tender age of 13, he was apprenticed to a merchant ship. He spent the next seven years at sea during which time he had ample opportunity to learn and sketch every detail of the ships on which he worked. On arriving in San Francisco in 1869 he decided to remain there.

By 1874 he was regularly exhibiting with the San Francisco Art Association and was a prolific painter until his death in 1936.  By far his most famous work is the evacuation of San Francisco following the Earthquake and Fire of the 18th April 1906. More than 3,000 people died in the disaster and 80% of the City was destroyed in the fire that ensued after the earthquake.

The Evacuation of San Francisco viewed from Sausalito – a giant (5ft x 10ft) painting done on a window blind from a burnt-down building.

Crotty, Mary

I was born in Lucan Co Dublin and have settled in a small village called Bracknagh in Co Offaly where my mother’s family come from. I am a self taught artist just starting out on this wonderful journey. I took up the paint brushes in 2014 and painted for about a year at my kitchen table, however life got busy with a young family & work, so painting fell to the wayside.
When Covid-19 and lockdown arrived in March 2020 and I had to close my small Children’s Art studio. It was during lockdown that I found the time to pick up my brushes again. My love for nature, nurtured by my mother, came to the forefront. I seem to be drawn to painting animals, birds & wild flowers. I spend many hours looking at them through my window, on walks and in any resource I can find. Nature is art at its finest and I love to capture it on my canvas.

Crowley-Long, Jacinta 


Living surrounded by her animals on the Wicklow/Wexford border, Jacinta has a deserved reputation as one of Ireland’s foremost contemporary canine and equestrian artists. She has exhibited not only in Ireland but also in the UK, mainland Europe and in America. Her paintings can be found in many private and corporate collections including the OPW, de Beers SA, BP and ETP International. She has been commissioned to paint dogs and horses, from the much loved mongrel to winners of classic races.

Jacinta is best known for her portraits of dogs and horses but equally she loves painting landscapes, interiors and for both types of work, she creates paintings by choice as well as undertaking commissions.

Most of her landscape subjects are found in the, fields and hills on the Wicklow Way near where she lives. She is captivated by the variety of dramatic skies, hills forests and mountains found around her 18th century rectory home and her garden paintings have been likened to some of the work of Mildred Anne Butler. Her preferred method is to work directly from the scene as much as possible, just adding the finishing touches in the studio. When compared with her portrait paintings, the advantage of painting landscapes, she finds, is that they offer more freedom in the way the subject is interpreted.

Commissions remain a large part of Jacinta’s work, from small head studies of dogs to animal and human portraiture. She works from life or photographs, mainly in oils and can be contacted via her website.

Make sure to check-out her special online gallery www.crowley-long.company which will operate for the duration of the Covid-19 crisis.

An iconic 1950s poster  in ‘CIE Art Deco‘ style. There’s so little information out there about minor artists that I haven’t even been able to establish Curran’s first name  – anybody?


Three further attractive posters by Curran, The first features the iconic CIE/Leyland Royal Tiger touring coach introduced in 1953. Fifty were eventual built and each carried the name of an Irish river. At the time they represented the epitome of luxury coach travel. The centre poster seems to aimed at the US market and is a return to the Art Deco style, while the final one is a more traditional image and seems to aimed at the domestic holidaymaker.

Bus Brochure

Another one – this time from a 1955 CIE coach tour programme.


Some more tantalising glimpses of Curran’s work on this 1950s CIE brochure.
