“Joshua Reynolds – first President of the Royal Academy”

There had been several attempts to found a national school of painting in the 18th century; today we’ll meet Joshua Reynolds – the first President of the Royal Academy whose art and lectures encouraged – and discouraged – generations of British artists.
