Description

"Deftly combining indigenous studies, postcolonial perspectives, cultural history, and visual studies, Kate Fullagar produces a new portrait of Georgian Britain that is both surprising and entirely convincing."--Douglas Fordham, University of Virginia
"Spanning three land masses and two oceans, The Warrior, the Voyager, and the Artist exemplifies the very best of the new biography, and is a must read for anyone interested in the cultural history of the British Empire."-- Eliga Gould, author of the Among the Powers of the Earth: The American Revolution and the Making of a New World Empire
"Kate Fullagar peers into the soul of the eighteenth century, discovering the shared human challenges that connected three very different men, three faces of the whirling gyre of the British empire. As deep and luminous as a Reynolds portrait, and as wide and wondrous as the Pacific, The Warrior, the Voyager, and the Artist will astonish."-- Jane Kamensky, author of A Revolution in Color: The World of John Singleton Copley
"A deftly-told story of three inter-connected but very different lives that challenges many of the clich�s about the history of the British empire. Fullagar's account is subtle, persuasive and humane."--John Brewer, California Institute of Technology
"Fullagar does for biography what Reynolds wanted to do for portraiture--have it speak with the authority and humanity of history. But where he failed, Fullagar brilliantly succeeds."--Peter Brunt, Victoria University of Wellington
