> DESCRIPTION

English artist Thomas Rowlandson represented a particular strain of neoclassicism that reveled in the physical liberty (either in fact or imagination) associated with antiquity. Amelia Rauser (Ph.D., Northwestern University), associate professor of art history at Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and a contributor to the exhibition catalogue Thomas Rowlandson: Pleasures and Pursuits in Georgian England, discusses the eroticism of antique art that surfaces repeatedly in Rowlandson’s oeuvre. Support for this program is provided by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.
