Samuel Lover (1797-1868) was an Irish novelist, songwriter and painter. Being privately educated in his native Ireland, Lover desired to work in the arts, and fled his father's stockbroking business to take residence in London, England. He took up many practices, but excelled in painting, mostly painting portraits and miniatures. In addition to painting, he took up writing and compoing, most notably writing "Rosy O'More" (1826), which was also developed into a novel and play. His other works include a successful novel titled Handy Andy (1842). As he grew older, his eyesight began to fail and he abandoned painting to focus on writing and entertaining, reading his writings with much popularity in Great Britian and the United States.
