Johan Zoffany, Artist and adventurer by Penelope Treadwell (Paperback)

£30.00 £20.00

This richly illustrated publication is the first comrehensive biography of the portrait painter Johan Zoffany (1733-1810), one of the leading figures of eighteenth-century British art.

Following ten years of detailed research, the author traces Zoffany’s remarkable file from his upbringing in Bavaria and apprenticeship in Rome to his subsequent success in Britain and adventures working in India.

This timely and entertaining biography – reproducing many images that have never been previously published – looks beneath the often deceptively smooth surfaces of his art to discover the intelligence, curiosity and subversive humor that made his work and life so distinctive.
