John Cashel Hoey (1828-92), an Irish journalist and editor, was appointed to the board of advice for the Victorian Agent-General in 1872 by Premier Gavin Duffy (for whom, see * Summers (Charles) Sir Charles Gavan Duffy {1877} Loc? [SC]). The 1905 NGV catalogue identifies Hoey as the “secretary to the Agent-General for Victoria, 1879-1892.”

The print bought in 1892 would appear to correspond to the impression held in the SLV, although both NGV 1894 and 1905 list it as a lithograph.

The SLV’s online catalogue provides the details and reproduction shown here. Below the image appears the printed inscription: “Drawn by C.W.Walton & Co., 103 Shaftesbury Ave.” C.W.Walton is listed in Bénézit 14, p.607. For Hoey, see e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Cashel_Hoey
