Thomas Luny Biography
He was born in London and received his formal training under the watchful eyes of Francis Holman. Lunyís first exhibited work was in 1777 at the Society of Artists and his address was given as ďat Mr. Holmanís, Johnson St., St. GeorgesĒ and it appears that he continued to work with Holman until the early 1780ís. His style of painting is very close to that of his master, this similarity may indicate that Luny assisted Holman on a number of works that were produced during this period.
