Isaac Fuller

(1606-1672), Painter

Sitter in 3 portraits
Artist associated with 12 portraits
Fuller was one of the most flamboyant artists of his time, producing large-scale history paintings and strikingly original portraits. He was an influential teacher and produced the earliest British drawing book (1654), but his bohemian lifestyle aroused controversy. John Evelyn described an altarpiece as 'too full of nakeds for a chapell' and Sir Peter Lely lamented 'that so great a genius should besot or neglect so great a talent'. He ended his career painting decorative schemes for taverns, all of which are now lost.
