Editorial Reviews


"The author has conducted exhaustive research in a wide range of historical and literary sources, and he makes particularly good use of the numerous contemporary reviews and commentaries in the public press....Postle's book is a significant addition to Reynold's scholarship....Postle deserves credit for the clarity of his jargon-free prose and the thoroughness of his research which will serve to provides the groundwork for any future study of the development of history painting in Britain." Albion

Book Description

This book is the first to concentrate on Reynolds's subject pictures. It demonstrates the way in which these pictures played a central role in shaping and defining Reynolds's attitudes towards the history of western art and the promotion of his own position as leader of the British school.
