Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723 - 1792) was one of the most famous portrait painters of the 18th century. As the son of a headmaster, he was able to enjoy more formal education than many of his colleagues. In 1740 Reynolds began his training with the London portrait painter Thomas Hudson . However, before settling in London as a portrait painter, he spent three years traveling, mainly in Italy, where he studied the old masters.

Through his intensive studies of antiquity and the Italian Renaissance, as well as Rembrandt and Rubens Reynolds was able to expand the British portrait art and give her more dignity. As a result, Reynolds established himself shortly after his return to London as one of the best portrait painters in the city. The king, Georg. III, but he never met. He painted many other personalities, such as "Anne, 2nd Countess of Albemarle" (circa 1760), "Captain Robert Orme" (1756) or "Colonel Tarletin" (1782).

Although the painter himself believed that history painting was the noblest of all painting, he seldom came to that genre himself. His reputation as a portraitist, on the other hand, spoke for itself. When the Royal Academy of Arts was founded in 1768, Joshua Reynolds was elected its first president. Only a year later, the painter was elevated to the nobility because of his merits. © Meisterdrucke
