Joseph W Carey RUA (Seascapes, Landscapes and Illustrations) (1859-1937)

Born in County Down, the son of the Rev JW Carey, a Moravian Minister, Joseph Carey trained as an illustrator with the publishers Marcus Ward & Co.  When the company went bankrupt in 1899, he set up a business in Belfast (Carey & Thomson) specializing in high quality illuminated addresses, presentation albums, and book plates.

A prolific sketcher, he showed his illustrations and landscapes at exhibitions of the Belfast Ramblers Sketching Club (of which he was a founder member), and the Water Colour Society of Ireland, in Dublin.  He also exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Academy in Dublin, contributing a total of 26 works between 1915 and 1935.

But his most prestigious commission as an artist was for the Ulster Hall - a series of thirteen scenes from Belfast history, completed in 1903.  He was a close friend of the artist Percy French, as well a founder member of the Belfast Art Society and the Ulster Academy of Arts.

He died in Belfast at the age of 78.

Examples of his work are in the Linen Hall Library, the Armagh County Museum, the Ballycastle Museum County Antrim, the Lisburn Museum, the Ulster Museum, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, and the Harbour Commissioners Office.
