Joseph William Carey was a painter born in Kilwarlin, County Down. He was the son of a Moravian minister and trained as an illustrator with Marcus Ward & Co. After the firm failed in 1899, he set up with his brother John Carey in Belfast. They specialised in illuminated addresses, presentation albums and bookplates. An active member of the Belfast Art Society, Ulster Arts Club and the Belfast Ramblers' Sketching Club in the 1890’s, Carey was the former’s only surviving member who was also a founder of the Royal Ulster Academy when it was formed in 1930. He exhibited at the RHA on twenty five occasions and his best known work is a series of thirteen scenes painted in 1903 from Belfast history for the Ulster Hall, these were restored in 1989. The Ulster Museum, the Ulster Medical Society, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Armagh County Museum, the Linen Hall Library and the Harbour Commissioners' Office also have holdings of his work. He was later elected to the Royal Ulster Academy.
