This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Primarily a landscape painter, John Day found reasonable success and patronage in Cork city.  He was regularly noticed in the local newspapers; for instance, in April 1857 students of the Crawford School of Art were enjoined to visit the studio of John Day where "many clever landscapes" - including one destined for the Glasgow Art Union - were on display (see Peter Murray, Illustrated Summary Catalogue of the Crawford Municipal Art Gallery, Cork, 1992, p.237).

In 1882 his painting 'Carragaline River' was loaned by Alderman William Hegarty to the Irish Exhibition of Arts and Manufactures in Cork (catalogue no. 1495).  Hegarty seems to have been a regular patron of Day's work; a record appears in the Cork Examiner of 14 June 1862 of him purchasing a large scene of Irish tinkers in a glade on Lord Shannon's demesne at Castlemartyre.
