Artist of 2 portraits
Samuel Percy was an Irish wax-modeller and sculptor, active in England. He trained at the Dublin Society's Schools and first exhibited at the Society in 1772. In about 1777 he went to London and soon established a thriving practice as a portraitist in wax, modelling in profile until 1790 when he added full-face portraits in high relief.
