Frederick Calvert, painter, watercolourist and engraver of topographical and marine views, was from Cork in Ireland. He first exhibited at both the Dublin Society of Artists and the Hibernian Society in 1815. In 1827 he moved to London, where he exhibited views of Dover Castle and Broughton Castle from a Pall Mall address and he later exhibited works at the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. In 1830, Calvert published ‘Picturesque Views in Staffordshire and Shropshire’ and also worked as an illustrator for the ‘Archaeological Journal’. The Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum hold watercolours by him and oil paintings by him are in the National Maritime Museum and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.
