"Richard Parkes Bonington was not only one of the most brilliant draftsmen in the whole history of art, he also was the bridge between the English and french schools of romanic painting--that stylistic fusion that was crucial to the future development of impressionism. Here, Carlos Peacock restores Bonington to his rightful position as one of the pioneers of modern art."--Publisher's description.
