Friedrich Bury, who was born at Hanau in 1763, studied first under his father Jean Jacques Bury, who was a goldsmith and professor in the Academy of Design in Hanau, and then with Tischbein. In 1780 he visited Düsseldorf, and two years later went to Rome; thence to Dresden, and finally settled at Berlin, where he was patronized by the Queen of Prussia. He painted historical pictures and portraits. A 'Cupid triumphant' by him is in the Hague Gallery.
