William Kenrick, AEt. 36.
William Kenrick, AEt. 36.
T. Worlidge fc.t.
[n.d., c.1756]
Etching, platemark 185 x 140mm (7 x 5½"). Small margins; good impression
Portrait of William Kenrick (1729/30-1779), writer and translator, portrayed at the age of 36. Volumes of Locke, Shakespeare and Milton by his side, and symbols of the arts and sciences, indicate his profession and interests. This portrait was made at a time when Kenrick was spending much of his time on the continent, but before his best-known achievements, which include translations of Rousseau and Voltaire and theatrical works. He also courted controversy, accusing Garrick of a homosexual relationship with Isaac Bickerstaff in his 1772 pamphlet 'Love in the Suds' (which went through five editions before Kenrick suppressed the work and apologized, fearing imprisonment for libel). Less successfully, he sought to goad Dr Johnson through critical reviews and accusations (against which Johnson maintained a stoic silence). By Thomas Worlidge (1700-66), 'the English Rembrandt'.
