Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The son of a miniaturist painter for Queen Victoria, Archibald Thorburn began sketching at an early age and received most of his training from his father, only briefly attending St. John's Wood School of Art. After the death of his father, Thorburn moved to London in 1885 and studied with Joseph Wolf.  In 1880, Thornburn began to exhibit at the Royal Academy and continued to do so for the next twenty years.  The artist specifically became known for his illustrations of birds for pub (showing 500 of 1715 characters).
