The life and works of Joseph Wright by William Bemrose (1831 - 1908).

Joseph Wright, commonly called "Wright of Derby", was an English landscape and portrait painter. In this book, something of an academic study of Joseph Wright, the author is trying to restore his name's fame. We catch glimpses from the painter's personal and professional life, his character and conduct, mainly through letters of correspondence.
Prefaced by Cosmo Monkhouse. (Summary by Rapunzelina)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/gri_33125009318771
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!
