Biography John H. B. Doyle
Born in Dublin, Ireland into a family of Wexford origins, John Doyle studied
at the Royal Drawing School, receiving a medal there at the tender
age of eight. He was also a private pupil of the Dublin based Italian
artist Gaspare Gabrielli and the Irish miniaturist John Comerford.
At an early age he specialized in painting horses. In 1821 he moved
to London where he began a long-running series of political cartoons
under the pseudonym 'HB', using a detailed, realistic form of drawing
quite different from other cartoonists of the day.
