The Life and Works of Joseph Wright
Description The Life and Works of Joseph Wright
Joseph Wright, commonly called "Wright of Derby", was an English landscape and portrait painter. In this book, something of an academic study of Joseph Wright, the author is trying to restore his name's fame. We catch glimpses from the painter's personal and professional life, his character and conduct, mainly through letters of correspondence.
