Abstract:

"Painter, poet, critic and teacher, Henry Fuseli (1741-1825) is one of the most idiosyncratic figures in the history of British art. His work has always been the subject of speculation, gossip and fantasy." "This book offers a completely new interpretation of the artist, placing him firmly in the context of a period of traumatic social, cultural and political revolution. Martin Myrone explores his career from his early work in London and Rome to his old age, the period of his greatest professional success when he exerted a profound influence on a whole generation of younger British artists. A vivid image of the artist emerges, revealing Fuseli as a seminal figure in the development of modern art."--BOOK JACKET.
