“I ADVANCED MY PICTURE DELIGHTFULLY “
George IV.Today Haydon is known less for his works than for his vivid, splenetic and highly entertaining diaries.
The story of his life is a uniquely moving tragi- comedy. With paintings and drawings by artists of the early 19th century including Turner, Fuseli, David Wilkie and B.R. Haydon.
“Heestorical peinter? Why ye’ll starve wi’ a bundle of straw under yer heed!”
