Biography: Dublin-born Charles Malcolm Grey (1841–1911) was the son of the artist Charles Grey (1808–1892) and brother of the artists and engravers Alfred Grey (1842-1926), Gregor P. Grey and Edwin Landseer Grey. Charles Malcolm Grey produced engravings after the designs of the illustrator and cartoonist, John O’Hea (1838?-1922), which were published the Dublin satirical magazine ‘Zozimus’. He also engraved a number of works after drawings by his brother Alfred Grey, which were published in ‘The monitor : an illustrated Dublin magazine’ in 1879. From the late 1860s, with his brothers Alfred and Gregor P., he was employed by the Commissioners of National Education in Ireland to engrave the illustrations in a series of textbooks. In 1880, Grey exhibited a number of wood engravings at the Royal Hibernian Academy annual exhibition. In 1882, he left Ireland for London where he found employment as an engraver for popular periodicals, including ‘The Illustrated London News’ and ‘The Graphic’.
