Dickens and the artists( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 268 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 explores 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

Poetry in beauty : the Pre-Raphaelite art of Marie Spartali Stillman by Margaretta S Frederick( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Marie Spartali Stillman was one of a small number of professional female artists working in the second half of the 19th century. She was an important presence in the Victorian art world of her time and closely affiliated with members of the Pre-Raphaelite circle. 'Poetry in Beauty', the first retrospective of Spartali Stillman's work, will showcase approximately 50 works by the artist. Spartali Stillman's style reflects her British Pre-Raphaelite training as well as the influence of Renaissance art, derived from the many years she lived and worked in Italy. Works from public and private collections in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, many of which have not been exhibited since Spartali Stillman's lifetime, will also be on view."
Frank Holl : emerging from the shadows by Mark Bills( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 85 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
The drawings of G.F. Watts by Chloe Ward( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Frederic Watts (18171904) is considered to be one of the Victorianeras greatest painters. Yet his drawings which served as the preparatorydesigns for his paintings and, in some cases, the final products of his creativeefforts have been the subject of surprisingly little scholarship. Watts Galleryholds the largest collection of Wattss works on paper, comprising approx-imately 800 studies, sketches, copies, and finished artworks that span Wattssentire artistic career. These range from remarkable copies of engravings madewhen he was a mere ten years old to figurative sketches drawn up to twomonths before his death in 1904 at the age of 87.Representing the most complete record of his development as an artist, Wattssdrawings offer unequalled insight into his techniques, compositional decisions,and working processes. His studies provide an uncensored record of his thoughtprocess, and reveal the choices and changes he made as he developed some of hismost celebrated works. This book is the first in depth study of Wattss drawings
