Pompeo Batoni - Prince of Painters in Eighteenth- Century Rome

£19.99

Product description

This book is the catalogue for an exhibition held at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and at the National Gallery in London, centred on an artist that embodies the fickleness of taste and fashion. He was the most sought-after painter of his time (the XVIIIth century), but after his death his fame and glory somewhat faded while people grew more and more attracted to the Renaissance artists whose works form the core of today's museums.

The book is divided into five chapters, tracing the artist's career, from his early religious pictures to his more famous portraits of his rich British patrons and European royalties, his mythological scenes and his drawings. The fifth chapter, focused on his drawings and working methods, is especially interesting and well-informed.
