Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), Novelist

Sitter in 20 portraits
Novelist of Polish parentage; became a seaman, and voyaged widely in the East, the setting for many of his most famous novels. Conrad became a British subject in 1886, settled in England in 1894 and devoted himself to literature. He slowly established himself as one of the greatest of all English-speaking novelists, with Lord Jim, 1900, Nostromo, 1904, and Under Western Eyes, 1911.
