Sir Joshua Reynolds, (born July 16, 1723, Plympton, Devon, England—died February 23, 1792, London),
portrait painter and aesthetician who dominated English artistic life in the middle and late 18th century.
Through his art and teaching, he attempted to lead British painting away from the indigenous anecdotal
pictures of the early 18th century toward the formal rhetoric of the continental Grand Style. With the
founding of the Royal Academy in 1768, Reynolds was elected its first president and knighted by King George
III. Academy and Paris Salon. Elected ROI in 1909. From 1905 worked mainly in the south of France.
