Drury, Susanna (c.1698-c.1770)

Susanna Drury was a mysteriously obscure but very able painter whose views of the Giant’s Causeway in County Antrim are landmarks both in Irish topographical painting and in European scientific illustration. Her exact birth and death dates are not known but she was the sister of a Dublin miniature painter named Franklin Drury, who died in 1771. The first trustworthy views of the Giant’s Causeway ever produced, Susanna Drury’s gouaches of 1739-40 won the £25 premium of the Dublin Society in 1740 when the artist’s identity was disclosed to the Society by Dean Gabriel Maturin, a prominent Dublin Huguenot. This raises the question of whether Susanna Drury had Huguenot connections or may have been trained on the continent. The groups of fashionably-dressed figures in both of Susanna Drury’s paintings show that as early as 1740 the Giant’s Causeway had become a tourist attraction. Ref: BBC.
