About

The work of Adam Buck, Regency portrait and miniature painter, provides a fascinating insight into the faces and fashions of this time. Buck’s portraits of The Royals, landowners, Serving Officers and society hostesses, dressed in white muslin, seated or standing in fashionable interiors, brings the world of Jane Austen vividly to life. Jane Austen enthusiasts know Adam Buck’s work better than most.

Born in Cork to a family of silversmiths, Buck specialised in painting miniatures from an early age and soon progressed to larger watercolour portraits. After working in Cork and Dublin, Buck left Ireland for London in 1795 and began a long and prolific career as a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy.
