Thomas Hargreaves was born in Liverpool, the son of a woollen draper. He must have shown great talent at an early age, as by 1790 he was enrolled at the Royal Academy Schools in London. From 1793, he was apprenticed to Sir Thomas Lawrence, whose influence can be seen in his portrait miniatures throughout his career. Returning to Liverpool to recover from a bout of illness in 1795, he was back in London by 1797. From 1798 he began exhibiting at the Royal Academy, a practice he continued until a few years before his death.
