Luke Sullivan trained as an engraver, and was employed as an assistant in the workshop of the printmaker and painter William Hogarth. In 1759 Sullivan published a set of views of noblemen's country houses, which he had both drawn and engraved himself. From 1764 onwards he also produced painted portraits - including a celebrated one of the actor David Garrick - and portrait miniatures (see cabinet 2: The Portrait Miniature in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries).
