This volume is devoted to the paintings in the National Gallery, Washington DC, that were produced from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century by British artists, or by foreign artists who spent the greater part of their working lives in Britain. Composed mainly of paintings acquired by such wealthy nineteenth century industrialists as Andrew Mellon and P. A. B. Widener, the core of this important collection is a series of portraits by such eighteenth-century artists as Gainsborough, Lawrence, Raeburn, and Romney, who represent the 'golden age' of British painting. Arranged alphabetically by artist, each work is accompanied by a full catalogue entry in which the history, style, and content is fully detailed. The volume also contains short biographies of each artist, as well as a pertinent and up-to-date bibliography.

The National Gallery's collection of eighteenth-century American paintings includes some of its greatest treasures and most beloved national icons. John Singleton Copley'sWatson and the Shark, Gilbert Stuart'sThe Skater (Portrait of William Granti)andGeorge Washington (Vaughanportrait)--as well as his portraits of the first five presidents of the United States, the so-called Gibbs-Coolidge portraits--and Edward Savage'sWashington Family. Ellen G. Miles, curator of painting and sculpture at the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution, presents new research culled from letters, wills, and other previously unpublished documents that offer a fresh perspective on the artists and sitters, as well as new insight into the paintings. (This publication is made possible by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation).
