Opis: George Romney (Classic Reprint) - Chamberlain Arthur B.

Excerpt from George Romney<br><br>The first part of this book is devoted to the life and career of Romney, and the writer has attempted to make it as complete and accurate as possible. Frequent use has been made of the earlier biographies by his son, the Rev. John Romney, and his bosom friend, William Hayley, as these, in spite of their prolixity, contain by far the fullest details of Romney's personal history. The life of a painter who is completely wrapped up in his art, as Romney was, is usually an uneventful one; but it is, nevertheless, when the painter in question is a man of genius, of very real interest to those who have come under his spell. By many Romney is still regarded merely as the man who painted and loved Lady Hamilton and deserted his own wife for more than thirty years - an inaccurate and exaggerated summary of his life, based upon insufficient knowledge. This point of view the writer has attempted to dispel by placing in their true perspective the many good qualities of his character, qualities which more than counterbalanced his less worthy ones. The second part deals with Romney s habits and methods of work, while the third is concerned with him as an artist, and with the position he holds in the English school of painting.<br><br>A number of the portraits and picture chosen to illustrate 'Romney's art here reproduced for the first time from photographs of the original paintings, thanks to the kindness of the owners.<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com<br><br>This book is a reproduction of an important historical work.
