James Northcote, history painting, and the Fables by Mark Ledbury( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The artistic accomplishments of James Northcote (1746-1831) have tended to be overshadowed by his role as a biographer of Joshua Reynolds, first President of the Royal Academy of Arts, with whom Northcote apprenticed. Here, Mark Ledbury constructs a very different image of Northcote: that of a prolific member of the Royal Academy and an active participant in the cultural and political circles of the Romantic era, as well as a portrait and history painter in his own right. This book focuses on Northcote's "One Hundred Fables" (1828), a masterpiece of wood engraving, and the unconventional, collaged manuscripts for the volume. An underappreciated and courageously eccentric masterpiece, the Fables, extensively published here for the first time, were an early experiment in what is now a familiar multimedia practice. Idiosyncratic, personal and visionary, One Hundred Fables serves as a lens through which to examine Northcote's long, complex and fruitful artistic career.

The life of Sir Joshua Reynolds, Ll. D., F.R.S., F.S.A., etc., late President of the Royal Academy : Comprising original anecdotes of many distinguished persons, his contemporaries, and a brief analysis of his discourses by James Northcote( Book )

8 editions published between 1818 and 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A fellow Devonian, James Northcote (1746-1831) was an admirer and pupil of Sir Joshua Reynolds, whose two-volume biography he published in 1813-15. Reissued here is the 'revised and augmented' second edition of 1818. Northcote is self-deprecating as to his fitness for the task, but claims that a worthy biography of a great artist can be written only by another artist, and his close personal knowledge of his subject and the circle in which Reynolds moved gives him insights, as well as providing anecdotes, which would not be available to a more 'professional' author. Volume 2 covers the remainder of Reynolds' life, including a description of his elaborate funeral and various assessments of his work, as well as details of the sale of his paintings, and a short account of the life of William Gandy, an obscure seventeenth-century painter whom Reynolds greatly admired
