Angels and Urchins
Martin Postle
Lund Humphries
The fancy picture - a character study of a whole range of often sentimental subjects - was a staple of eighteenth-century British art. The genre which evolved in the Low Countries and was developed by French artists such as Watteau and Chardin was adopted by a succession of British artists from Wright of Derby to Reynolds Thomas Lawrence and Gainsborough. This is the first book to be devoted to this rich but often neglected branch of eighteenth-century British art and brings together some of the most appealing images of the period.
