Frederick Burton (Born 1816) was born in Wicklow. He was educated in Dublin. At the age of twenty-one after completing his education, he was elected an associate of the Royal Hibernian Academy and an academician 2 years later. Burton was a painter, the third son of Hanna Mallett and her husband Frederick Samuel Burton. His grandparents were Jane Blood and Major Edward William Burton. He began to exhibit at the Royal Academy in 1842. In 1842, he visited Bavaria and Germany. This visit was the first of a long series of trips to various parts of Europe. In his youth Burton had strong compassion with the Young Ireland Party and he also liked to travel. So the visits to Germany and Bavaria gave him a profound knowledge of the Old Masters’ works. From 1851 to 1858, he worked in Bavaria as a painter in the service of Maximilian II. The artist worked with Petrie George on archaeological sketches and was on the council of the Archaeological Society of Ireland and the Royal Irish Academy. In 1855, he was elected an associate of the Royal Society of Painters in Watercolors, and in 1856 he became a full member. He resigned in 1870, but was re-elected in 1886as an honorary member. He was responsible for many key purchases, among them Raphael's Ansidei Madonna, Leonardo da Vinci's Virgin of the Rocks, Hans Holbein the Younger's Ambassadors, Anthony van Dyck's Equestrian portrait of Charles I, and the Admiral Pulido Pareja, by Diego Velázquez. His art, especially the framed Frederick Burton art still stun many collectors and individual purchasers.
