Additional Information: FREDERICK BUCK – 1771 – 1839 Born in Cork, 1771; son of Jonathon Buck & brother of Adam Buck, he was a pupil of the Dublin Society Schools in 1783 He had a large practice in Cork, living in 1787 at Fen’s Quay, 1795 in Mardyke Street & in 1810 in Buckingham Square. During the Peninsular War, when Cork was a busy port of embarkation, his services were in great demand to paint portraits of officers. When he was particularly busy in order to keep pace with the demand he kept a supply of painted ivories to which he added the heads & regimental facings as required. He tended to use rather a hot colouring which is an unmistakable characteristic of his work. Examples of his work are in the V & A Museum.
