Description:'Portrait painter and architect, Francis Bindon was born at Clooney, County Clare about 1698. His exact birth date is not known. Francis was a member of the Royal Dublin Society. He developed an interest in portrait painting and because he was a wealthy gentleman with good connections he soon attracted some notable patrons. He is best known for his many portraits of Dean Swift, in particular, the full-length portrait painted in 1739 for the Chapter of St. Patrick's Cathedral.'
