Thomas Luny

Thomas Luny (1759-1837), born in Cornwall, was an English artist and painter, mostly of seascapes and other marine-based works. At the age of eleven, Luny left Cornwall to live in London. There he became the apprentice of Francis Holman, a marine painter who would have a great and long lasting artistic influence on Luny. Luny remained until 1780 in Holman’s London studio, which, was first situated in Broad Street, and later relocated to Old Gravel Lane.
