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.

The following information was submitted by John Murphy, who received it from Heather Rendle, Secretary of the Echuca Cemetery and researcher of the Echuca Historica Society in Victoria, Australia.

Patrick J Lysaght and his wife Catherine / Kate Clifford were married in County Cork in 1843. Both are buried in an unmarked grave in the Old Catholic Section of the Echuca Cemetery, Section B Row 7 grave 26. They had no family nor known connections here. 
From Ireland originally, Patrick had been with the 78th Regiment of Foot at Cork in 1843 and had exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin in 1843. They had come to Victoria c.1868 from New Zealand where they had lived from 1860.  He said he was a miner in NZ.
Patrick started as an artist and photographer in South Melbourne before coming to Echuca about 1874. He came to Echuca as a Drawing Master at the Echuca Grammar School, a small private school at the time, and lived in a small wooden cottage in Little Mitchell Street (now Bolton Street), which is close to St. Joseph’s College, location of the Bridgidine Convent and where he and his wife were at the time of her death in 1897. 

Patrick himself died at his home on August 21,1889.

They were really low profile in the town and got mentioned only in the death notices of the local paper only getting mentioned in the death notices and P J Lysaght in the School enrollment ads.       
Sometime in the late 1830’s Patrick Lysaght worked as a landscape draughtsman to Sir Robert Wilmont Horton, who was Governor of Ceylon.  One of the oil paintings he gave to the art union at the Catholic Bazaar was of the Mahawillaganga River in Ceylon, and the other was of sawmills and boats on the Murray River. As he was far from well off, this was a generous gift to the church funds. Other works by Lysaght are in the National Museum of New Zealand.

When he died he left no will but his probate papers show a total estate of about £70, which went to his widow.
