Summary
This book marks the retirement of Robert Wark as Curator of the Huntington Art Collections and reflects his wide interests in the field of British art. Contributors include Shelley Bennett, David Bindman, Martin Butlin, Patricia Crown, Robert Essick, John Hayes, Ronald Paulson, Jules Prown, Graham Reynolds, and Duncan Robinson. Topics covered in this volume include the connection between the political and the aesthetic in Hogarth's art, verbal/visual relationships in British book illustration, Blake's illustrations to Paradise Lost, late-eighteenth-century portrait miniatures, Cotes's double portrait of the Crathornes, the French Revolution in English graphic art of the 1790s, comic art and the rococo, a study of a Reynolds portrait, and a tribute by John Hayes to Robert Wark's thirty-five years of curatorship of the Huntington Art Collections. The essays are accompanied by 122 color and black and white illustrations of items from leading British and American art collections. -- Book jacket
