Gregor Grey

Biography from the Archives of askART

Gregor Grey was the son of Charles Grey RHA (c.1808-1892) and brother of the painters Alfred Grey RHA (1845-1926), Edwin Landseer Grey and James Grey and the engraver Charles Malcolm Grey.

Gregor Grey exhibited every year at the Royal Hibernian Academy from 1877-1911, averaging three to four exhibits a year - the most that a non-RHA member could possibly hope to have accepted.  He also showed twice at the Oireachtas Art Exhibitions (Irish Parliament) of 1906 and 1907.

His works tended to be on a rustic theme and featured quaint, anecdotal titles.

Grey earned - albeit unwittingly - some modicum of posterity when James Joyce included in his novel, Ulysses, a character called Gregor Grey who was the designer of Gallaher's map and whose career was given "a leg up" by illustrating an advertisement.
