Victorian painting : essays and reviewsVolume two,: 1849-1860
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Art and Culture in the Nineteenth Century series
First published in 1980. This anthology of fifty-three essays drawn from eleven weekly, monthly, and quarterly periodicals was assembled in order to reproduce in convenient form some of the more important articles on British painting published from 1832 to 1848 in Great Britain.
Reviews of major exhibitions form a large part of the collection, but essays treating individual artists, discussions of the effect of state patronage of the arts and attempts to assess the uniqueness of the English tradition of painting are also included.
This title will be of great interest to students of Art History
