Biography:
John Opie displayed artistic talent at a young age and was first discovered by John Wolcot. In 1781, Wolcot started Opie’s career in London, marketing him as a naïve genius under the nickname, “The Cornish Wonder.” Opie painted portraits and other paintings in a style similar to that of Rembrandt. His later work was uninspired and repetitive. In 1805, he became a professor of painting at the Royal Academy and his lectures were published in 1909 after his death. Opie also produced history paintings for Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery.
