Thomas Clement Thompson (1780 - 1857):
Artist


Thomas Thompson was born in Belfast. He studied art at the Dublin Society Schools and began his career as a miniature painter. He later abandoned this for large-scale portraiture, and after 1817 established a successful studio in London. Among his sitters were George IV and the 2nd Marquis of Ormond. He was a founder member of the Royal Hibernian Academy, and exhibited there between 1826 and 1852. He also painted landscapes, such as 'Belfast from the banks of the Lagan'. He died in Cheltenham.
