Life of Benjamin Robert Haydon, historical painter, from his autobiography and journals by Benjamin Robert Haydon( )

20 editions published between 1853 and 2016 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the painter Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786-1846) committed suicide, he had left instructions that an account of his life should be published, using his autobiography up to 1820 and his letters and journals for the rest. The writer and dramatist Tom Taylor (1817-80) took on the editing, and the three-volume work was published in 1853. (The slightly enlarged second edition, also of 1853, is reissued here.) Haydon was a history painter at a time when that genre was perceived as the greatest form of the art, and his friends included Wordsworth, Keats, Shelley, Charles Lamb, Hazlitt and Elizabeth Barrett Browning. However, he was constantly in financial difficulties, and in later life a sense of failure seems to have turned into outright paranoia. Volume 3 uses Haydon's journals to continue the account up to the day of his death. His two-volume Conversations and Table-Talk, edited by his son, is also reissued is this series

Correspondence and Table-talk With a Memoir by His Son by Benjamin Robert Haydon( )

7 editions published in 1876 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artist, diarist, and devotee of the Elgin Marbles, Benjamin Robert Haydon (1786–1846) is best known for his large-scale paintings, such as Christ's Entry into Jerusalem and The Raising of Lazarus. After he entered the Royal Academy in 1805 as a student of Henry Fuseli, his forthright views and combative manner fuelled a feud with the institution and perceived enemies. His unshakeable belief in his own genius and his unwillingness to compromise his artistic standards drew him ever further into debt, which ultimately contributed to his suicide. As a writer, Haydon's acute eye for the humorous is demonstrated throughout his correspondence and diary. In this two-volume work, first published in 1876, his son Frederick Wordsworth Haydon (1827–86) brings together letters and extracts from his father's journals. Volume 2 contains selected letters, including those to and from Keats and Wordsworth, along with a host of witty and erudite journal extracts
