Thomas Pope, Portrait Painter

(fl. c. 1771-1775)

Portrait Painter

From A Dictionary of Irish Artists 1913

Son of Stevens Pope of Cabragh, and brother of Justin Pope Stevens (I) (q.v.). As an artist he was self-taught, and practised as a miniature painter, and was also a clever copyist of the old masters. He was living in 1771, and was probably the Thomas Pope whose death was announced in "Exshaw's Magazine" as taking place on 26th September, 1775. He was father of Somerville, Justin, and Thomas Pope-Stevens, and of Alexander Pope, who are separately noticed.
