Joseph Wright of Derby was born into the age of the beginning industrial revolution. Closely linked to his hometown of Derby, he developed his interest in science at an early age. His first steps as a painter Wright undertook in his apprenticeship with a portrait painter. He adopted the style of his teacher with moderate success. Profitable orders were canceled.

Joseph Wright of Derby changed his style and incorporated his love for the scientific discoveries of his time into the paintings. Wright created the first painting of the Industrial Revolution with the work The Experiment with the Bird in the Air Pump. At the same time, he created a series of illustrations of candle-lit persons in the center of the picture. This presentation was new and the artist received the long-awaited attention. Derby went a step further with the positioning of scientific equipment as the focus of his work.

He took on the style of light-dark painting, which had already entered Dutch painting and experimented with artificial light sources. The ability to represent landscapes in a realistic way in the play of light was demonstrated by Joseph Wright and his cave in the evening. Renewed attempts at portraying failed because of his realistic presentation, which was often not desired by the client. © Meisterdrucke
