An Irish artist who lived in Dublin, John Faulkner painted rustic scenes almost exclusively in watercolour. He also worked in England at several stages during his lifetime. He exhibited at the R.A. but mainly at the Royal Hibernian Academy [R.H.A.] where he was elected a member in 1861. Arguably the finest Irish landscape painter in watercolour of the 19th century and much prized by collectors.
