Eminent Spirits of Wilford Woodruff

Joshua Reynolds

Notwithstanding the great achievements in literature through the 1700s, the arts in England in general had fallen to their lowest state. The tradition of Puritanism confused the beautiful are with sensual art, thereby inhibiting the development of new talent. “The Puritan Reformation brought to England and Scotland a way of intolerance, intense and bitter beyond even the developments in Germany and Holland. The rich medieval arts of Britain, painting, sculpture, and ornamentation, which survived through the days of the Tudors and the Stuarts, were wiped out in a stroke. In the 1600’s English Parliament mandated the destruction of much artwork. A single entry in the records of 1643 states: We brake down 1000 pictures superstitious.” It was into this artistic climate that Sir Joshua Reynolds was born.”
