dc.descriptionThe mid-eighteenth century saw a flourishing of Irish painters, sculptors and dealers in Rome, and the flowering of landscape painting both at home in Ireland and abroad. Among the many Irish artists working in Rome were Robert Crone who lived there from 1755 until 1767; James Forrester, from 1755 to 1776; Matthew Nulty, the antiquarian, from 1758 until his death in 1778; and James Barry from 1766 to 1770. Works by the artist John Butts, who went to Dublin from Cork in 1757, have mostly disappeared. There appear to be only four known works by the artist, including a chalk drawing of a tree in the National Gallery of Ireland.en
