Content Description

Recounting his early studies, while with the Linley's; that he could see pictures by Gainsborough and Hoare but no old masters; and so he goes back to London and hooks up with the men who populated his youthful months in the capital, Cosway, Cross, Mortimer, Hodges, Jones and William Pars; he recounts his reception by Sir Joshua Reynolds, P.R.A. and the encouragement this gave him.
