MAGRATH, William (mag-rah'), artist, born in Cork, h'ehmd, 20 March, 1838. After attending the Cork school of art he came to this country, and opened a studio in New York city. He was one of the earlier members of the American society of painters in water-colors, and was elected an associate member of the National academy in 1874, and a National academician in 1876. He moved to England in 1879, but returned to this country in 1883 and established his studio in Washington. He has executed many strong and original works, of which "On the Old" Sod" (1879) attracted much attention for its technical merits and the fine sentiment that it suggested.
