Thomas Sully YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Thomas Sully (1783-1872) painted some of the most dynamic personalities of the 19th century, including Queen Victoria, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette. Although he created more than two thousand portraits and subject paintings, his full production has never before been examined in depth. The child of actors, Sully's lifelong connection to the theatre informed his imagination. His portraits of 19th-century actors, celebrities, royalty and politicians established his reputation, and would mark all his works, particularly his "fancy pictures", portraits evoking scenes from literature, fairy tales, Shakespeare, or of his own devising. This essential introduction demonstrates how the artist interpreted the nature of painting as performance, manifested in his dazzling productions. Two essays, 160 colour reproductions, and an illustrated chronology survey and elucidate his career.
