G.F. Watts : Victorian visionary : highlights from the Watts Gallery collection by Mark Bills( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Widely regarded as a genius and as the greatest painter of the Victorian age, George Frederic Watts (1817-1904) was a ceaseless experimenter throughout his seventy-year career. He was not only the finest and most penetrating portraitist of his age but also a sculptor, landscape painter, and symbolist." "This illustrated book encompasses the work of his entire career, from his early self-portrait in 1834 and first exhibited painting in the Royal Academy in 1837 to his most iconic work, Hope, and the remarkable, almost abstract painting, Sower of the Systems, completed in 1903. In addition, the book includes historic photographs and archival materials, especially concerning the establishment in 1904 of the Watts Picture Gallery in Compton, Surrey, for the permanent exhibition of his art. Essays by leading scholars examine the artist's output, life, reception, and legacy."--Jacket
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
