Description
From Thomas Phillips' 1835 portrait of Lord Byron in Albanian dress (painted after an 1813 original) to a 1783 copy in oils of Joseph Siffred Duplessis's 1778 rendering of Ben Franklin in pastels, this book brings vividly to life an engaging cast of Regency-era figures through a combination of biographical sketches and reproductions of works in Britain's National Portrait Gallery. Together they illustrate the diversity and exuberance of a remarkable period in British history that included the war of American Independence, the trial of Queen Caroline, the introduction of vaccination, the Battle of Waterloo, the publication of Don Juan, and the abolition of slavery.
