Mr Wildman

1787 - 1788. Oil on canvas.
Room 063

Romney stood out among the English portraitists of his time for his accuracy in depicting the appearance of his sitters, which he valued, as here, more than psychological penetration. A rival to Lawrence, he was distinguished by a more classicist concept of the genre and a more dramatic use of chiaroscuro. The sitter here seems to be James Wildman (1747–1816), although it could also be his brother Thomas (1740–1795).
