RICHARD PARKES BONINGTON: "ON THE PLEASURE OF PAINTING." Patrick Noon. Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, 1991. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 316 pp. with 249 ills. (192 col.). 34 x 26 cm. LC 91-65083 ISBN 0300051085 In English.
A major study of the brief but highly influential career of British Romantic artist Bonington (1802-1828), whose naturalistic landscapes, harbor views and genre scenes had a profound impact on both French and British artists throughout much of the 19th century. Presenting outstanding reproductions and detailed analyses of some 140 drawings, oil paintings and watercolors by Bonington (many of them rarely or never before exhibited) along with 25 works by such contemporaries and associates as Turner, Delacroix and Huet, the catalogue features an extensive discussion of the artist's career in England and France, the development of his distinctive style and his significant role in the Romantic movement.
