Who is Patrick Wybrant?

Patrick Wybrant (born 1816, Rothdrum, County Wicklow, Ireland) was an Irish born player who painted in the UK from 1849 to 1852, spent approximately three years in the United States, and returned to take action in Yorkshire, UK approaching 1855, and may have continued to law until his death, in Knaresborough, West Riding of Yorkshire in 1894.

Several US Art dealers and commentators have incorrectly identified him as having been a Native American. A typical Wybrant painting is a portrait, a profile view done in watercolor, signed “Wybrant Artist” and archaic in numerals. Little guidance has been published about Wybrant upon the internet; what exists tends to be spurious copy devised to publicize sales of the portraits. His paintings have value for those avid in 19th century fashion.
