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

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.

He maintained links with Ireland; his third son, Henry Edward Doyle (1827-1892), born in Dublin and a member of the Royal Hibernian Academy*, became Director of the National Gallery of Ireland.
