27 editions published between 1887 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The celebrated Victorian narrative painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909) was a born raconteur. His two-volume autobiography of 1887 ran to three editions in the same year. The third edition is reissued here, together with its supplementary volume of 1888. Frith was an ideal commentator on his age. He never lost his early interest in literary and historical subjects, and moved in the highest artistic and literary circles. Yet he also saw himself as a man of the people. His most famous works were his 'modern-life' panoramas, Ramsgate Sands (1854), Derby Day (1858) and The Railway Station (1862). Discussing such projects, he reflects on everything from costume to portraiture, art dealers to female artists, and even picture frames. Volume 1 covers his childhood, training, friendships with Dickens and others, and the phenomenal success of his first crowd scenes, up to and including The Marriage of the Prince of Wales (1865)

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Powell Frith, painter of Derby Day and The Railway Station, was a great Victorian artist, yet this is his only biography. Born the same year as Queen Victoria, Frith was initially a reluctant artist; preferring auctioneering. Art historian Christopher Wood presents a vivid picture of the man who, in true Victorian style, had a wife, mistress and nineteen children. Published to coincide with major exhibitions at the Guildhall, London and Harrogate."--Jacket
