Example text

His Death of General Wolfe (versions at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and Kensington Palace, London) caused a storm of critical comment, because he had dared break with tradition and represent his subjects in contemporary dress, not in the inappropriate although accepted togas of antiquity. He also pointed the way to the high Romantic style oflater years with his dramatic and theatrical subjects, such as Saul and the Witch of Endor (Tate Gallery, London), King Lear (Athenaeum Gallery, Boston), and Death on the Pale Horse (final version at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia), which followed the ideas outlined in Edmund Burke's A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful (1757).

On the other hand, Copley supplied a horizon line and left out one or two touches that were unclear irl John Singleton Copley the engraving. His main contribution, however, was in the color (presumably not indicated on the engraving), which is, even at this early stage, typical of much of his later work.
