Joseph Wright of Derby (1734-1797) is well-known for his paintings of scientific discovery and industry but he was also a successful portrait painter. He painted some of the leading figures in Macclesfield including Charles Roe. Last year Macclesfield Museums bought two Wright portraits of John Stafford and Barbara Tatton. This display celebrates these portraits and the stories behind them.
