*HENRY BROCAS (1762/1765 2 November 1837) was an Irish artist known for his landscapes, born in Dublin in 1762 or 1765. The Brocas family descended from an Englishman, Robert Brocas, who came to Ireland from Derbyshire during the Cromwellian reign as a cornet of horse. He was a self-taught artist, working in watercolour and oils, and a prolific engraver. His engravings featured portraits, caricatures, and topographical views which were published in Dublin periodicals and magazines. Four of his sons, James Henry, Samuel Frederick, William and Henry, were also artists. Other family members were artists though none with the initials above.
