Thomas Walmsley (Landscape Artist, Scene-Painter) (1763-1806):- Born in Ireland, the son of a Lancashire army officer, the details of Walmsley's early arts training (if any) and exact location (probably Dublin) are not known. A family quarrel when he was about 20, resulted in him going to London, where he worked as a scene-painter at the Royal Opera House. He returned to Dublin and continued painting stage-sets, this time at the Crow Street Theatre. In around 1790 he left Ireland and spent the rest of his life in England, practising landscape painting in watercolour and oils, although he revisited Ireland on several occasions to paint the scenery. Up until 1795, he exhibited a series of Welsh landscapes at the Royal Academy in London, followed in 1796 by a number of views of Killarney, which were printed and reissued in aquatint. According to Walter Strickland, Walmsley's paintings were "remarkable for the great luminousness of his skies." His works are represented in the collections of both the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. In his 40s, Walmsley's health began to fail and he died in Bath in 1806.
