Sir Frederic William Burton was an Irish painter and museum director. He was taught painting by the Brocas brothers in Dublin and, like them, he specialised in watercolours. He soon established himself as a portrait painter, and he had many notable sitters in Dublin. Burton was elected Royal Hibernian Academician in 1839 at the age of twenty-three. In 1851 he settled in Munich, from where he made sketching trips and visits to German art galleries.
