Patrick Wybrant (born 1816, Rothdrum, County Wicklow, Ireland) was an Irish born artist who painted in the UK from 1849 to 1852, spent approximately three years in the United States, and returned to work in East and North Yorkshire, UK around 1855, and may have continued to work until his death, in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire in 1894.[1]

Several US Art dealers and commentators have incorrectly identified him as having been a Native American. [2] A typical Wybrant painting is a portrait, a profile view done in watercolor, signed "Wybrant Artist" and dated in numerals. Little information has been published about Wybrant on the internet; what exists tends to be spurious copy devised to promote sales of the portraits. His paintings have value for those interested in 19th century fashion.[3]
