British Paintings of the Sixteenth through Nineteenth Centuries
Translated by Edmund Ryden
British masterpieces of grand-style portraiture and landscape painting are explored in this volume. Portraits such as Thomas Gainsborough's Mrs. Richard Brinsley Sheridan, as well as pictures by George Romney and Sir Henry Raeburn, attest to the influence of Sir Anthony van Dyck's more sophisticated European style on artists of the period. John Constable's Wivenhoe Park, Essex and Joseph Mallord William Turner's Keelmen Heaving in Coals by Moonlight are some of the best examples of British art of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
