The Four Friends by George Romney

By Reece Irving

This painting was made in 1796 by George Romeny. It is called The Four Friends. He makes his drawings dark not light. There is also a statue in the this picture next to a man drawing or writing in his notebook. I liked it because all of the people were looking different ways. George Romeny was born in 1734 in England, he lived down the road from Abbot Hall Art Gallery. His painting of the four friends made me feel like I’m sitting in a boat reading. This painting is over 200 years old! George Romney died in 1802, he was 68 when he died.
