Joseph Wright of Derby in Liverpool by Elizabeth E Barker( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1768 Joseph Wright left his native city of Derby and moved to Liverpool in search of recognition and success. Earlier the same year he had exhibited the masterly Experiment on a Bird in the Air Pump to great acclaim in London, but he had failed to sell the picture. He would also, at the end of the year, find himself excluded from the Royal Academy. Liverpool offered Wright the opportunity to engage with wealthy clients who had little experience of art patronage. He painted portraits of the prosperous merchants and their families, and he continued to develop the brilliantly illuminated subject paintings on which his reputation chiefly rests today." "This illustrated book examines Wright's decisive impact on the artistic climate of the expanding port town of Liverpool and on the other artists working there. The Merseyside network of merchants, bankers, and amateur and professional artists that Wright encountered in the years around 1770 is identified as his true historical milieu. The book serves as the catalogue of the exhibition of the same name shown at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool, and the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven in 2007-8"--Jacket

Joseph Wright by Stephen Daniels( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Wright painted some of the most powerful works of eighteenth-century British art: blacksmiths hammering a glowing bar of iron, dramatic demonstrations on scientific apparatus, erupting volcanoes, gloomy prisons, a fashionably dressed gentleman reclining full-length in a forest. Stephen Daniels addresses this interesting diversity by looking closely at the inextricable links between Wright's art and the different worlds of the Enlightenment movement that so fascinated and inspired him. Wright's unique connection with the innovations of his age, together with his interest in new techniques and his use of an unusually wide range of pictorial and written sources, single him out as one of the most original and enterprising artists of his time."--Jacket
