Portrait of Sir Joshua Reynolds, from the original painted by himself, in the National Gallery at Florence, habited as the President of the National Academy. SIR JOSHUA REYNOLDS was born near Plymouth, England, in 1723, and died 1793, aged 69. He commenced under Hudson, but at 26 years of age went to Italy to prosecute his studies. On his return he was acknowledged to stand at the head of his profession--his whole life passing in the diligent unwearied pursuit of his art, at once his business and his pleasure, but little interrupted by sickness and never by misfortune; enjoying munificent patronage and the friendship of the most distinguished persons. He was chosen the first President of the Royal Academy to which office Mr. West succeeded. His best Portraits and Historical Compositions are admirable for their rich and mellow colour; and his Lectures, delivered before the Royal Academy, are esteemed, not only by artists, but by all persons of taste, for purity of style and soundness of judgment.
