Joseph Wright

(Born 1734 in Derby in Derbyshire), Painting

Joseph Wright was an English portrait and landscape painter. His work is significant for his use of the chiaroscuro effect, which highlights the contrast of light and dark which can be seen in his paintings of candle lit subjects. He has been celebrated as the first professional painter to demonstrate the mood of the Industrial Revolution.
