Thomas (Sir) Lawrence
Born: 1769 - Bristol, England
Died: 1830 - London, England
Known for: portrait painting
Sir Thomas Lawrence was born in England in 1769. At the age of five he began selling crayon likenesses to the patrons of his father's tavern in Bristol; at twenty, he was the rage of London and at fifty he had painted most of Europe's royalty. He never lost a sitter because of an unflattering likeness. Reynolds had a great deal of influence on Lawrence, but with him the master's smoothness and graciousness became all too often softness and insipidity.
His most famous painting, "Pinkie", a child-portrait of genuine charm and dignity, is the very essence of English art of the Regency. The subject was Sarah Moulton-Barrett whose brother Edward was to become the notorious domestic tyrant whose daughter Elizabeth Barrett achieved immortality as poet and the wife of ***** *****ing.
Lawrence's male portraits were almost uniformly distinguished but he was principally a painter of women. In 1815 he was knighted and he became president of London's Royal Academy in 1820. He died in 1830.
