Dickens and the artists by Mark Bills ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A remarkably visual writer, Charles Dickens (1812-1870) emerged from a tradition where illustrations formed a significant part of both serial and book publishing. At the centenary of his birth, this book explorers the novelist's artistic opinions and connections. His tastes are manifest in his novels, his magazine "Household Words" and his journalism. Dickens engaged with the art of the Old Masters, commenting forthrightly on the latest changes at the National Gallery, and recording his visits to museums during his tours of Europe. As well as exploring Dickens' own views, the contributors reveal his influence on Victorian artists
Mary Seton Watts (1849-1938) : unsung heroine of the Art Nouveau by Veronica Franklin Gould ( Book )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frank Holl : emerging from the shadows by Mark Bills ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Francis 'Frank' Montague Holl (1845-1888) was one of the great painters of the Victorian era, notable for his tragic social realism as well as his penetrating portraits. Although highly respected in his lifetime, his early death meant that he never fully received the acclaim that his work merited. His great subject pictures, often on bleak themes, were frequently criticized for their darkness but found great favor with the public. His portraits can be seen on a par with those of Watts and Millais, and he was an influence on Van Gogh who greatly admired his work. This book represents the first retrospective of this significant artist. Exploring in parallel the subject paintings and the portraits, it considers the importance of Holl's output and his continued relevance today

In this important work, Chesterton examines and analyzes the art of the revered British painter and sculptor George Frederick Watts.
