9780300196979: Reynolds: Portraiture in Action (The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art)
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.'-Michael Glover, The Independent -- Michael Glover The Independent '[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.'-Charles Saumarez Smith, Literary Review -- Charles Saumarez Smith Literary Review '[An] authoritative and sumptuous book'-Christopher Masters, World of Interiors -- Christopher Masters World of Interiors '[A] masterly and pioneering new study of Reynolds at work'-Martin Gayford, The Spectator -- Martin Gayford The Spectator '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 '[A] formidable but enquiring study that re-presents Reynolds as the 18th century's master painter-portraitist.'-Stephen Lloyd, Apollo -- Stephen Lloyd Apollo "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

From the Publisher:

Sir Joshua Reynolds, the first President of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, was the most celebrated and innovative British portraitist of the eighteenth century. He was acclaimed for transforming portraiture into an art form that had all the ambition, depth and animation of history painting, and that could communicate the most complex personal, psychological and social narratives. This book offers a deeply researched and compellingly written investigation of the portraiture that brought Reynolds such fame. It provides a detailed account of the artist's varied career in a highly competitive marketplace for portraiture, offers close readings of his most striking and intriguing canvases, and pays particular attention to the dynamic ways in which he exploited the new forms of print culture and pictorial display that were emerging in late eighteenth-century Georgian London. Ranging across all aspects of his practice in the genre, Reynolds: Portraiture in Action offers a highly original reassessment of an especially important and influential figure in the history of British art.
