Biography: The painter Joseph Patrick Haverty (1794-1864) was born in County Galway. He spent time in London and Limerick but was predominantly domiciled in Dublin. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in the 1830s and the Royal Hibernian Academy throughout his career. Whilst Haverty produced historical and genre paintings, such as ‘Father Matthew receiving a repentant pledge-breaker’ ( c.1846) and ‘The blind piper’ (both in the National Gallery of ireland), he is best known for his portraits of the leading Irish political figure, Daniel O'Connell (1775–1847). In 1845, Haverty created and published a lithographic print after his drawing of Daniel O'Connell addressing his supporters entitled ‘The Monster Meeting of the 20th September 1843 at Clifden’, which, as stated on the print, was ‘drawn on the spot, the portraits from actual sittings, lithographed by J. Haverty'.
