Oil painting -> List of Painters -> Sir Thomas Lawrence

Early Days:

   Sir Thomas Lawrence was born in Bristol. His father was an innkeeper, first at Bristol and afterwards at Devises, and at the age of six Lawrence was already being shown off to the guests of the Bear as an infant prodigy who could sketch their likenesses and declaim speeches from Milton. In 1779 the elder Lawrence had to leave Devises, having failed in business and Thomas's precocious talent began to be the main source of the family's income; he had gained a reputation along the Bath road.
