Product description

Review

'Mark Hallett's "Reynolds: Portraiture in Action" is the fullest, best and most readable account of Reynolds' development as a portrait artist in decades, and the book is expensive because its many illustrations keep pace with almost everything that Hallett describes in his well-chosen words./i> --Michael Glover"The Independent" (08/30/2014)

'["Reynolds"] has now been handsomely published by Yale University Press and is a major and deeply serious work, informed by all the latest scholarship in the field of 18th-century studies. . .It is deeply thoughtful about the ways in which Reynolds conceived of his compositions and the most substantial contribution to the study of Reynolds for a generation./i>--Charles Saumarez Smith"Literary Review" (09/01/2014)

[A] masterly and pioneering new study of Reynolds at work Martin Gayford, " The Spectator"--Martin Gayford"The Spectator" (08/09/2014)"

Hallett. . .brings Reynolds s actions as a portraitist alive on the page. He reveals the inventive energy Reynolds put into the practice of an art form that had come to be stigmatised, and traces the decision-making both inside compositions and between portraits as they were displayed and in relation to their settings. The portraits tell the story; the life, in "Reynolds: Portraiture in Action," is in the works. Norma Clarke, "TLS"--Norma Clarke"TLS" (10/24/2014)"

Sumptuous . . . Hallett s reassessment and the book s wonderful illustrations give one a chance to judge [Reynolds s] portraits properly. Henrik Bering, "New Criterion"--Henrik Bering "New Criterion ""
