Mr Wildman
Oil on canvas. 1787 - 1788
Romney, George

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

Kauffmann, Angelica

A successful interpreter of the Neo-classical style, Angelica Kauffmann here offers an elegant image of the sitter, Anna Escher von Muralt (1767 -1830), who belonged to a prominent Swiss family. The subject is depicted sitting in a wooded spot, wearing a fashionable gown of classical inspiration. A circular temple in the background completes this idealised evocation of the ancient world.

Saint Sebastian
Oil on canvas. 1798 - 1802
Schick, Christian Gottlieb

A pupil of Jacques-Louis David in Paris, Schick executed this work during his time in David’s studio. The figure is painted from life using a model who also appears in some of the life studies by J.-A.-D. Ingres, a fellow pupil of Schick. It reflects the influence of the classicising Italian Baroque, particularly Guido Reni, albeit interpreted with a sensuality typical of German art of this period

Hebe
Marble, Metal. 1825
Tadolini, Adamo

This portrayal of Hebe, the personification of Youth, was traditionally attributed to Antonio Canova; now, however, it is thought to be wholly the work of Tadolini, Canova’s most gifted student. It was commissioned by the Duchess of Osuna.
