Beranger, Gabriel, ca. 1729-1817, artist
Inscription found on a Stone in Abbey Athasall Co. Tipperary near Golden, 17 July 1781
Title inscribed in ink u.c.
Attributed to Gabriel Beranger (1729-1817) because the writing of the accompanying text shows a capital L used for the word "Large", a feature found elsewhere with him.

Inscribed in ink l.c.: Note The characters on the upperstone are somewhat Larger [sic] than on the Lower, So [sic] that it may be they do not belong to the Same [sic] inscription.

Some words can be made out from the copying of a Black Letter inscription: ... de Burgo ... Mor7dha fili donet ... mac ... fecet...

Physical description: 1 drawing : pen ; 28.3 x 19.6 cm.
