520 8  In this life of painter John Singleton Copley, award-
       winning Harvard historian Jane Kamensky masterfully 
       untangles the web of principles and interests that shaped 
       the age of America's revolution. Copley's prodigious 
       talent earned him the patronage of Boston's patriot 
       leaders, including Samuel Adams and Paul Revere. But the 
       artist did not share their politics, and painting 
       portraits failed to satisfy his lofty artistic goals. An 
       ambitious British subject who lamented America's 
       provincialism, Copley looked longingly across the 
       Atlantic. When resistance escalated into all-out war, 
       Copley was in London. The magisterial canvases he created 
       there made him one of the towering figures of the British 
       art scene: a painter of America's revolution as Britain's 
       American War. Kamensky's gripping history brings Copley's 
       world alive and explores the fraught relationships between
       liberty and slavery, family duty and personal ambition, 
       legacy and posterity-tensions that characterized the era 
       of the American Revolution and that beset us still.
