Johan Zoffany: Artist and Adventurer
Johan Zoffany: Artist and Adventurer, a beautifully designed and illustrated publication, is the first comprehensive biography of the portrait painter Johan Zoffany (b.1733, d.1810), one of the leading figures of eighteenth-century British art.
Following ten years of detailed research, the author traces Zoffany's remarkable life from his upbringing in Bavaria and apprenticeship in Rome to his subsequent success in Britain and adventures working in India. He is a figure who is ripe for reassessment, as a commentator on eighteenth-century politics and history as well as a painter.
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 humour that made his work and life so distinctive.
