James Barry (1741-1806), the English painter who attracted the patronage of the statesman Edmund Burke who then sent him to Italy. Inspired by antique art, he executed several large historical works in a neo-classical style and, from 1777 to 1783, he decorated the great room of the Society of Arts. An ardent spokesman for high art, he became disillusioned with contemporary patronage and quarrelled with most of his colleagues.
