Biography George O'Neill
George O'Neill was born in Dublin but left for England in 1837, and was
accepted at the Royal Academy Schools in 1845. A successful student, he
regularly exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1847 onwards, and gained a
reputation as a painter of charming narrative scenes.
He was a member of the Cranbrook Colony, a group of artists who settled
in Cranbrook, Kent from 1854 onwards and were inspired by
seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painters. They have been referred
to as 'genre' painters as they tended to paint scenes of everyday life
that they saw around them, typically scenes of domestic life; cooking
and washing, children playing and other family activities.
