Anthony Bailey is the author of two studies of Rembrandt and a full-length life of Turner. For many years he was a writer for The New Yorker. He was born in Portsmouth and studied history at Oxford University. His many books include a novel, Major Andre, and two much-acclaimed memoirs, America, Lost & Found and England, First & Last.
'In clear and graceful English, Anthony Bailey presents all that can be known and much that can be guessed about this miraculous painter and his small but active world of Delft. The scholarship is deep; the response to the paintings sensitive, crisp and fresh.' John UpdikeBuy now
