Stephen Slaughter

1697-1765 England/Painted mostly in Ireland

 

Brief Biography-Stephen Slaughter was a portraitist born in England who studied under Godfrey Kneller. He completed his studies at the Saint Martin's Lane Academy. During the 1720s, Slaughter spent time in Paris and Flanders, and in 1734 moved to Dublin, achieving much success with his portraiture. Costumes of the Irish nobility, which were exceptionally lavish, were his speciality. He frequently visited England, and in 1744 he was Keeper of the King's Pictures. However, throughout his career, most of his portraits were of Irish sitters.
