(1750–1811), English draughtsman. Bunbury executed several works in pencil and crayon during a Grand Tour in the late 1760s. In 1792, Bunbury was commissioned by Thomas Macklin to illustrate a Shakespeare Gallery, in competition to John Boydell's. The gallery ran for four years, closing in 1796 in response to shifts in public taste.
