William Godwin's Diary


Where it took place if known

Again, Godwin likely attended the Monday following the private Saturday opening and dinner of the yearly Royal Academy exhibition. Contributors included John Opie, Richard Westall, J.M.W. Turner, James Northcote, Philippe Jacques de Loutherbourg, Paul Sandby, Sir Thomas Lawrence, Sir Martin Archer Shee, John Flaxman, and William Gilpin. Henry Fuseli notably did not contribute, probably due to his engagement in delivering Academical Lectures that year.
