Born in Dublin, Louis King Bradford studied drawing and painting at the Royal Dublin Society School, exhibiting at the Royal Hibernian Academy as early as 1827.  Working in oils and watercolour, until the age of 30 he painted only landscapes, but thereafter included subject-paintings and the occasional narrative picture in his repertoire.

Notable works included two scenes from Don Quixote, The Separation and The Rescue (both 1843).  In 1855, he was elected an Associate of the Royal Hibernian Academy. 

A self-portrait which hangs in the National Self-Portrait Collection of Ireland, in Limerick, shows a young man of sensibility, sketching in a "natural" setting, composed in a studio. It is an essay in old master browns, a Rembrandt in modern guise, its edges fading into darkness.
