Scenes of the great and good of Georgian England and its empire from the wry 18th-century German artist.

Johan Zoffany made his fortune in England and India painting society figures, from aristocrats to actors and connoisseurs and the middle classes. His enjoyment of life and sense of humour is evident in his meticulously observed portraits and charming conversation pieces. This show, which comes to the Royal Academy from its first outing at the Yale Center for British Art in the USA, includes several works that have not been seen in public before.
