Sir Edward John Poynter



Sir Edward John Poynter [1836-1919] è stato un pittore inglese, esponente del Neoclassicismo Vittoriano. Pur essendo solo pochi anni più giovane rispetto alla generazione degli artisti vittoriani, Poynter sopravvisse ai suoi grandi contemporanei. Infatti, Poynter era seconda solo al Lord Frederic Leighton 1830-1896.
Dopo aver visitato Roma, studiò a Parigi [1856-1859] presso M.-Ch.-G. Gleyre, interessandosi al classicismo. Nel 1860, Poynter inizia la carriera a Londra, che gli portò molti riconoscimenti. Espose dal 1861, alla Royal Academy, di cui divenne membro nel 1877 e presidente [1896-1914]. La sua pittura storica, caratterizzata da una viva capacità narrativa, divenne poi formalmente accademica. Fu anche professore di storia dell'arte nell'University College di Londra e direttore della National Gallery [1894-1904].
