Less well known is the fact that he left America in 1774, when the impending armed struggle between the Colonies and England threatened to destroy his livelihood, and settled in London to pit himself ambitiously against the Old Masters and the English giants of the day. Copley's English career was long and brilliant - and represents the most important period of his working life. During the forty-one years he spent in England, Copley created his great masterpieces of history painting and portraiture that stand as key monuments of British painting. From the earliest days of his career in London Copley realized that he would have to do everything possible to stand out in a crowded field of painters and create works that would bring him instant notice. This he did with his first great English picture, The Copley Family (1776-77) and, even more dramatically, with the landmark Watson and the Shark (1778). He quickly mastered the elements of the fashionable English style of painting, exchanging the tight and linear handling of the Colonial period for one more fluid and expressive. By the 1780s Copley was reckoned one of the most important painters working in England, a clear rival to his compatriot Benjamin West. With his masterpiece, The Death of Major Pierson (1784), Copley assumed a place of primacy in the field of history painting. While William L. Pressly gives a balanced, up-to-date exposition of Copley's English career, Emily Ballew Neff examines his masterpiece, The Death of Major Pierson, in particular detail, and is the author of the catalogue of his major English works. This is a long overdue study of this important painter+-+187594303632425613ocn000088209book19140.74Copley, John SingletonLetters & papers of John Singleton Copley and Henry Pelham, 1739-1776BiographyRecords and correspondence+-+64335526753241548ocn642742385file17900.70Copley, John SingletonProposals for publishing by subscription, an engraving, from the historical picture, of the siege and relief of Gibraltar, painted by John Singleton Copley ...

Copley's life began in the humble surroundings of Boston's waterfront. As a poor boy growing up in a city where no formal art instruction was available, rigorous self-instruction was Copley's only means to his goal of becoming a painter. Through laborious work Copley mastered his craft; the portraits he produced between 1753 and 1774, at the height of his fame, were distinguished by the fully rounded modeling and realism which make the personalities of his subjects come alive. His paintings in these years were the best works a colonial American artist had ever produced. Yet his personal letters reveal that he found life in Boston limited; he cites the dearth of great art from which to learn and by which to be inspired, and complains of what he perceives to be the underappreciation of his patrons. The Boston Tea Party and other events led inexorably toward the Revolution. Copley was unwillingly drawn into the troubled political arena; his loyalist connections made his life in Boston increasingly turbulent and precarious. In 1774, at the suggestion of Joshua Reynolds and Benjamin West, Copley became convinced he was wasting his talents in the colonies and moved to London to study the European masters. This decision marked the second period of his life, lasting forty years, and instigated a no less dramatic shift in the style and subject of his art. Copley's tour of European cities and galleries broadened the range and scope of his work. He produced large canvases of sweeping historical scenes of war, political subjects, and religious subjects considered taboo in the colonies10592ocn000542695book19660.47Prown, Jules DavidJohn Singleton CopleyFor contents, see Author Catalog10342ocn032085369book19950.33Rebora, CarrieJohn Singleton Copley in AmericaHistoryExhibition catalogsThis book, which accompanies an important exhibition of Copley's work organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is the first major study of the artist published since 1966.

The selected essays - all written within the last two decades - reflect the interdisciplinary character of art historiography in America and the variety of approaches that contribute to the dynamism in the field. The authors take up diverse subjects - from colonial portraits to 19th-century sculptures of women to photographic images of New York - and invite those with a general knowledge of the history of American art to think more deeply about art and culture. Employing many interpretive methodologies, including iconology, social history, structuralism, psychobiography and feminist theory, the contributors to this volume combine close analysis of specific art objects or groups of objects with discussion of how these works of art operated within their cultural contexts. The authors consider the works of such artists as John Singleton Copley, Charles Willson Peale, Georgia O'Keeffe and Jackson Pollock as they assess how paintings, sculpture, prints, drawings and photographs have carried meaning within American society. And they investigate how the conceptualization, production and presentation of works of art both inform and are informed by prevailing attitudes towards the role of the arts and the artist in American culture+-+83441555853245364ocn000364570book19650.54National Gallery of Art (U.S.)John Singleton Copley, 1738-1815 : [catalogue of exhibition held at] National Gallery of Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Fine Arts, BostonExhibition catalogs4974ocn006530992book19800.24Flexner, James ThomasAmerica's old mastersBiography4734ocn000478686book19390.47Flexner, James ThomasAmerica's old masters; first artists of the new worldBiography45715ocn012754487book18730.74Perkins, Augustus ThorndikeA sketch of the life and a list of some of the works of John Singleton CopleyBiography3322ocn000054280book19690.06Flexner, James ThomasThe double adventure of John Singleton Copley, first major painter of the new worldJuvenile worksA biography of the eighteenth-century painter who was America's first major artist3296ocn003654436book19070.56McSpadden, J.
