The ten pictures presented here offer vivid proof of the richness and versatility of British painting during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth- centuries.
This book was written with two objectives in mind. The first is to present a series of brief essays, having taken shape over fifteen years, on several important and popular British paintings in the Huntingdon collection. The second is to suggest something of the scope of the character of British painting of the Georgian period.
