London, The Wallace Collection - This major exhibition offers news insights into the artistic practice of Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792), one of Britainís most important and influential painters.  Building on the many discoveries made during a four-year research project into the outstanding collection of the artistís works at the Wallace Collection, Joshua Reynolds: Experiments in Paint investigates his radical manipulation of pigments, oils, glazes and varnishes. It traces his experiment with colour, tone and handling, reveals his continual temptation to rework and revise his pictures, and illuminates his highly creative responses to the new exhibition culture of his day. The exhibition also examines Reynoldsís collaboration with his patrons and subjects, with whom he continually explored the possibilities of gesture, expression, performance and role-play.
