OP219 Thomas Luny

Thomas Luny 1759 - 1837 Marine Painter

The attack on Fort Royal, Martinique.

Size. Approximately 27" by 45"

As the painting is not signed then it is attributed to Thomas Luny.

Thomas Luny was a London born painter of marine subjects. He studied with Francis Holman and exhibited at the Royal Academy until 1793, when he joined the Royal Navy at the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. Luny retired from the Navy in about 1810 due to rheumatoid arthritis and settled in Teignmouth where he continued to work until the end of his life. Examples of his work can be found in the National Maritime Museum and other public collections.

The painting has been relined in the last twenty years, but is in good overall condition for its age. Any further photographs or detail will be happily forwarded. The painting was originally bought from a private collection. The frame is 20th century.
