Victorian PaintingBook - 2000
The Victorian era and its aftermath were the backdrop to one of the great flowerings of British art. The genre arose from a ferment of activity from which the Pre-Raphaelites emerged along with Leightons luxurious classical mythologies, as well as a fascinating diversity in other artistic fields. Christopher Wood, a leading expert, takes us through the artistry of Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Waterhouse, and others to show the succession of movements characterizing the Victorian period. A selection of Book-of-the-Month Club.
