Biography Nathaniel Grogan
Nathaniel Grogan (c.1740-1807)
One of several Irish landscape artists to emerge in the second half of the eighteenth century - others being painters like George Mullins (fl.1763-75), the polished Thomas Roberts (1749-78), his Romantic-style brother Thomas Sautelle Roberts (c.1760-1826) and William Ashford (1746-1824) - Nathaniel Grogan was born in Cork. Apprenticed to his father, a turner and block-maker, he started drawing with chalk on board and attracted the attention of the great landscape painter John Butts (c.1728-1764) who greatly encouraged him. However, his father was so hostile to a career in art that Grogan joined the army while still in his teens and served several years overseas in America and the West Indies
