John Boultbee exhibited six paintings at the Royal Academy The first in 1776 (A landscape) and the last two in 1788 (Portrait of Horses and Portrait of a favourite horse of Mr Bakewell).

Boultbee was influenced by the work of George Stubbs and Sawrey Gilpin. Later in life he lived and worked in Derby, Leicestershire, Chester and finally Liverpool where he died in 1812.
