Seymour Stokes Kirkup was born in London, the son of a diamond merchant. He entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1809 and became the friend of Blake and Haydon. In 1816 he visited Italy for health reasons, settling in Rome and Florence where he made portrait drawings of John Gibson and Joseph Severn. He exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1833 and 1836 from Florence and was present at the funerals of Keats and Shelley.
