Abstract

The flourishing of the English school of portraiture in the eighteenth century is a particularly curious phenomenon in the history of Western art. The character of the century itself, which witnessed the final stand of many established traditions was reflected in the development of painting. Perhaps the most significant social change, for that period and the structure of the modern world as well, was the evolution of class status and attitudes.
