WOODBURN, THOMAS

(fl. c. 1766)

Landscape Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Was a pupil of Robert West in the Dublin Society's School in Shaw's Court, and in 1766 exhibited at the Society of Artists in William Street six landscapes and sea-pieces. For one of these landscapes he was awarded by the Dublin Society a bounty of five pounds. His name does not occur again as an exhibitor, and nothing further is known of him. Two pictures: a "Coast View in the Mediterranean" and "Moonlight," both copies after Vernet by "Woodburn," belong to Major Tottenham, of Woodstock, Co. Wicklow.
