Robinson, John Henry (1796-1871; English), after Stewart, Malcolm (1829-1916; British)
Daniel O’Connell, Esq., M.P.
Gift of John Pascoe Fawkner 1868
National Gallery of Victoria (p.180.21-1)

The inscriptions identify the sitter and the artists involved. O’Connell (1775-1847), known as the “Irish Liberator,” famously campaigned for Catholic emancipation; there was also a plaster bust of him in the pre-Felton collection.

Stewart portrayed Queen Victoria, Dickens and other noted figures of the era.

Like Robinson after Selous Surrender of Calais {1868} NGV [PR], this print is extensively foxed.


Not listed in NGV 1894 or 1905
