ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the roles of English painter Sir Joshua Reynolds as a biographer and portraitist, using evidence from the 1797 biography "An Account of the Life and Writings of the Author Sir Joshua Reynolds," by Edmond Malone. The author compares the text to other artist biographies, focusing on his inclusion of Reynolds' private papers. Specific topics include Reynolds' 1771 text "Discourse," Reynolds' connection to author Samuel Johnson, and Malone's influence on later art biographers.
