John Boyne (artist)
John Boyne, born in the County Down about 1750, is known as a water-colour painter of some repute. He was apprenticed to William Byrne, the landscape engraver, but it is said led a wild kind of life. He died in 1810. A drawing by him, 'A Meeting of Connoisseurs,' is in the South Kensington Museum.
