This book seeks to locate DeWint within the changing attitudes and ideas in painting of the period and to highlight how key historical changes such as agrarian reform helped shape his career. It also reveals hitherto neglected facets of the painter's work including his interest in architectural subjects, his use of Creswick papers and his post-humous reputation. Featuring a full reprint of his wife's memoir, Peter DeWint 1784-1849: 'For the common observer of life and nature' will provide a major reappraisal of the artist's life and career."--Jacket." ;
