Joseph Addison (1672-1719)

Joseph Addison was a playwright, essayist, poet, and journalist. From a young age, his writing talent procured posts for him in the Whig government. In the newly created London coffeehouses, Addison and his friend Richard Steele created a news journal, "The Tatler," and then the satirical and imaginative "Spectator." Although his poetry and tragedy were famous in their day, Addison is remembered primarily as an essayist. This painting portrays Addison as a young man.
