An interesting scene of Molesworth Street, Dublin 1812. This scene was painted from Harden's Lodgings in Molesworth Street on the Corner of Frederick Street and St Ann's church. It shows several figures of people going about their daily life, a couple walking, a man with a sack on his back perhaps delivering wood or coal. The red brick built building has "Sam Sharp" above the door suggesting it had a commercial use and several graceful trees are behind a brick built wall which has a white plaque with the letters FP (Fire point?).

Watercolour on card and signed bottom right "26th April, Molesworth St, Dublin" and housed in a lovely rectangular wooden and water gilt frame.

John Harden 1772-1874 - he was born in County Tipperary and spent his youth in Dublin. He was a watercolourist who produced a number of landscapes and depictions of day to day life of his family, servants, friends and acquaintances. He painted in the Lake District, Bath and London. The artist John Constable stayed with Haden when he visited the Lake District in 1806. A watercolour by Harden of Brathay House, Windermere is in the Queen's Collection.
