Stephen Daniels addresses this unusual diversity by looking closely at the inextricable links between Wrights art and the different worlds of the Enlightenment movement that so fascinated and inspired him. Wrights unique connection with the innovations of his age and his use of a wide range of pictorial and written sources, together with his interest in new techniques, single him out as one of the most original and enterprising artists of his time.
