Thompson Was born about 1780, and was probably a native of Belfast. He was admitted to the Dublin Society's drawing schools in 1796, and after going through his course started as a miniature painter in Belfast and Dublin. In 1801 he sent, from 17 Sackville Street, seven miniatures to the exhibition in the Parliament House, and eight the year following. An advertisement in "Saunders' Newsletter" in October, 1802, says: "Mr. Thompson, miniature painter, having returned from the north informs his friends and the public that he is now ready to attend their commands as usual." In 1803 he was in Belfast, but for the next few years nothing is heard of him. In the interval he abandoned miniature painting, in which he had imitated the style of Comerford, and henceforth confined himself to portrait painting in oil. In 1809 he again appeared as an exhibitor, sending from Belfast a portrait in oil to the exhibition in Hawkins Street. In the following year he settled in Dublin where he acquired a good practice, painting many persons of distinction, and was a regular exhibitor in the Dublin Artists' Exhibitions until 1821.
