Thomas Lawrence: Regency Power & Brilliance Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769and#8211;1830) was the pre-eminent portraitist of the Regency period, depicting monarchs, political leaders, aristocratic families, society beauties, and actresses with bravura flair. This important book explores Lawrenceand#8217;s political friendships and allegiances along with his exceptional role as witness to significant historical events, and contrasts these with his remarkable ability to depict the charm and innocence of childhood. Elected President of the Royal Academy in 1820, Lawrence was instrumental in establishing the status of the artist in 19th-century Britain.
