Daniel Maclise (1806-1870) "Mrs. M.A. Brewer, nee Jeaffreton", fine watercolor portrait, 1832
This watercolor portrait of a relatively young lady (she is referred to as "M.A. Brewer, nee Jeaffreton" on verso; she was obviosly daughtor of London physician Dr. Henry Jeafferton (see Google)) is a work of well-known London artist of Irish descent - Daniel Maclise.
Daniel Maclise (1806 Cork – 1870 London) was the son of a Highland soldier. His education was of the plainest kind, but he was eager for culture, fond of reading, and anxious to become an artist. His father, however, placed him, in 1820, in Newenham's Bank, where he remained for two years, and then left to study in the Cork school of art. In 1825 it happened that Sir Walter Scott was travelling in Ireland, and young Maclise, having seen him in a bookseller's shop, made a surreptitious sketch of the great man, which he afterwards lithographed. It was exceedingly popular, and the artist became celebrated enough to receive many commissions for portraits. With careful economy he saved a sufficient sum to enable him to leave for London. There he made a lucky hit by a sketch of the younger Kean, which, like his portrait of Scott, was lithographed and published. He entered the Academy schools in 1828, and carried off the highest prizes open to the students. In 1829 he exhibited for the first time in the Royal Academy. Gradually he began to confine himself more exclusively to subject and historical pictures, varied occasionally by portraits of Campbell, Miss Landon, Dickens, and other of his literary friends. In 1835 he was elected his an associate of the Academy, of which he became full member in 1840. The years that followed were occupied with a long series of figure pictures, deriving their subjects from history and tradition and from the works of Shakespeare, Goldsmith and Le Sage. In 1866 he refused an offer of the presidency of the Royal Academy, and, in later life, became quite reclusive. He never married but lived with his parents and sister in London, where he died of acute pneumonia on the 25th of April 1870. During his career he achieved a status and respect which was unequaled by any other Irish artist in Britain.
