Thomas Lawrence (1769-1830) was the pre-eminent portraitist of the Regency period, depicting monarchs, political leaders, aristocratic families, society beauties and actresses with flair.

Elected President of the Royal Academy in 1820, Lawrence was instrumental in establishing the status of the artist in nineteenth-century Britain

Producing the past : aspects of antiquarian culture and practice, 1700-1850 by Martin Myrone( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Antiquarianism, which had its roots in Renaissance thought, was a popular intellectual and cultural pursuit throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The antiquarian work of collecting, compiling and presenting material which exposed the past was seminal to the formation of social and national identities. These essays evaluate the cultural and political implications of antiquarianism in the period 1700-1850. The volume also considers how the antiquarians laid the foundations of later museum culture and the discipline of history."--Jacket
