Thomas Jones Pencerrig

Richard Veasey  Other books by Richard Veasey

This first, full-length biography of the eighteenth-century landscape artist Thomas Jones (1742-1803) seeks to draw together the different threads of his life. It follows his career as a painter, first in London and then in Italy where he spent six and a half years. In 1787 he unexpectedly inherited the family estate at Pencerrig in Radnorshire on the death of his elder brother and spent the rest of his life as a country squire.

As well as supervising all the farmwork undertaken, he was personally involved in several landscaping projects, yet he continued to paint whenever he could. During his later years he wrote his lively memoirs based largely on his experiences in London, Roma and Naples.
