GANDY, JOSEPH MICHAEL #
- Born: 1771 Died: 1843
English architect, for biography of whom see Howard Colvin, A Biographical dictionary of British architects 1600-1840 (3rd edn., 1995), 388-390. In 1807 Gandy exhibited designs for the rebuilding of 'Ballon Town', Co. Carlow, for J. Marshal, Esq. at the Royal Academy (no. 948). In a letter to The Guardian in 1820 Gandy listed his completed buildings at Ballon as evidence of his professional activity.(1) A portfolio containing 'a quantity of late 19th century architectural drawings by Joseph Gandy' was in the Lyons House sale of 23 October 1962 (Lot 236), suggesting the possibility that Gandy prepared schemes for the first or second Baron Cloncurry.
