Bunbury was from a landed family, educated at Westminster and Cambridge. He completed his Grand Tour 1769-70 and may have studied in Rome. His European travels inspired a series of caricatures mocking foreigners, most notably the series La Cuisine de la Poste. (see our stock number 5223). This work was shown at the Royal Academy in 1771 and thereafter Bunbury was to become an honorary exhibitor at the Academy. He was equerry to HRH the Duke of York during the 1780's retiring to Keswick in 1799. 


His designs were etched by Darly, Bretherton, and from the 1780's by Dickinson.
