National Portrait Gallery Mid-Georgian portraits, 1760-1790

WAS £75.00 £37.50 Out Of Stock

Product description

This catalogue includes such famous figures as David Garrick and Dr Samuel Johnson, Sarah Siddons and Emma Hamilton, and the work of such celebrated artists as Gainsborough, Reynolds and Romney. It has been compiled by one of the leading authorities on 18th-century English portraiture, John Ingamells. A brief biographical note accompanies each sitter, followed by a detailed examination of each of the Gallery's portraits and an account of authentic portraits in other collections. Works from the Gallery collection have been re-examined in the studio, sometimes for the first time in many years, with interesting results. X-rays of the Reynolds portrait of Sir William Chambers, for example, reveal considerable changes of mind on the part of the young artist, while William Hoare's portrait of Lord Egremont, usually on loan to the House of Commons, has proved to be by Hoare himself, rather than his studio.

Published by the National Portrait Gallery in 2004.

In very good "as new" condition.

This is a heavy item which will be sent by courier.
