James Barry (1741-1806)

A pioneer figure in the history of Irish art, and the greatest 18th century Irish exponent of history painting, the eminent classical artist James Barry was born in County Cork where he absorbed the fundamentals of drawing and painting from local painter John Butts, with whom he studied for a time. But he was largely self-taught as an artist, and first attempted oil-painting at the age of seventeen.  In 1763 went to Dublin, and studied under Jacob En (showing 500 of 3283 characters).
