Description:Little is known of the present artist. An entry in Strickland's Dictionary of Irish Artists mentions R. Gibbs as a portrait painter living in Patrick Street, Cork in 1810. Gibbs could also be associated with the Scottish painter Robert Gibb. The 19th century architect William Robertson employed two artists to draw views of Kilkenny for a topographical publication, one of whom might have been Gibbs. This illustration may be from the Kilkenny series. The work is clearly inscribed, including notes about the site and its condition.
