MACLISE Daniel (b. 1806, Cork, d. 1870, London) Nationality : Irish

Irish painter and caricaturist, active in London from 1827. An outstanding draughtsman, Maclise became the leading history painter of his period, his greatest works being two enormous murals in the House of Lords on The Meeting of Wellington and Blucher at Waterloo (completed 1861) and The Death of Nelson at Trafalgar (completed 1865). They were done in the water-glass technique and are poorly preserved (a sketch for the Nelson in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool gives an idea of the original colouring), but they are powerful works - fully coherent in spite of the huge numbers of figures involved - and they remain the most stirring examples of his heroic powers of design.
