The Poet’s Head: The Agency of the Authorial Portrait in the Eighteenth Century
Malcolm will be speaking about his ongoing research into the authorial portrait in the eighteenth century. Taking Roubiliac’s marble bust of Pope as a central focus, Malcolm will connect developments in the display of author portrait busts in libraries, and the production of frontispiece engravings to printed works, to show how the image of the author was one of the most versatile and reproduced forms of portraiture in the period.
