Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Brilliant account of, mainly, artists lives in 18th century London. Gatrell has a great eye for the joy and fun of the times as well as the more obvious problems of poverty, destitution and disease, and his account of the coffee shops, bath houses and the more directly named brothels is wonderfully informative as well as entertaining. He paints a colourful and detailed picture of the setting for Hogarth, Rowaldson, Turner and many others as they go about their lives and work.
The book is beautifully produced and almost every work of art mentioned, and that amounts to hundreds, is illustrated alongside its entry.
A glorious read.
