KIRKUS REVIEW

A skillful and succinct portrait of our greatest 18th century portraitist. A genius and a worlding, a ladies' man and epicure, an individualist and a libertarian, a man with a tortured and passionate nature behind an elegant facade, Stuart, though he won fame in his life, died in penury. A portrait of Washington in every American history book makes Gilbert Stuart a household name.
