Patrick MacDowell (1799-1870)

John Henry Foley and John Hogan were the preeminent sculptors in the United Kingdom of the mid-nineteenth century.  The only other sculptor of worthy of note is Patrick MacDowell from Belfast. 

Like Foley, MacDowell spent much of his career in London, executing numerous public commissions including the Statue of Turner in St Paul's. 

A celebrated artist of his day, he excelled in smaller pieces, although his monumental works were competent and well received.

Later in the 19th century, Foley, Hogan and MacDowell were followed by four more talented Irish artists: John Hughes, Oliver Sheppard, Andrew O'Connor and Jerome Connor.
