Although he has remained an elusive figure, Uvedale Price (1747–1829), the author of Essay on the Picturesque (1794), was, according to Nikolaus Pevsner, ‘the most brilliant of the theorists of the English picturesque’. This first, full-scale biography of Price demonstrates how his theories, which excited Georgian society, were based both on his experience of managing his estate at Foxley in Herefordshire, and on his interests in art and ancient and modern literature.
