James Malton (d.1803) architectural draughtsman, came to Ireland with his father, Thomas Malton, senior, and was for nearly three years, during the building of the Custom House, employed as a draughtsman in the office of James Gandon, the architect, but for breaches of confidence and many irregularities he was dismissed. The first mention of his name as an artist occurs in 1790, when he sent, from Dublin, two drawings to the Society of Artists in London. In 1791 he completed a series of drawings of Dublin buildings, from which the well-known set of views were engraved. Twenty-five were reproduced in etching and aquatint, done by Malton himself, and their publication began in 1792.
