Emilia Lecky (c.1788 - c.1844):
Emilia Lecky was born in Dublin. She moved to Derry, but later returned to Dublin. From 1826 to 1842 she exhibited at the Royal Hibernian Society. She painted portraits, where generally the sitter was anonymous, as well as religious and historical themes. Her portrait of the Honorable William Porter, Attorney General of the Cape of Good Hope, suggests that her subjects were prominent members of society. There are no known examples of her work.
