Lizzie Siddal : face of the Pre-Raphaelites by Lucinda Hawksley( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the twenty-first century, even those who do not know Lizzie Siddal's name will recognize her face: she is Millais's doomed Ophelia and Rossetti's beatified Beatrice in two of the nineteenth century's most famous paintings. As Lucinda Hawksley explores in Lizzie Siddal, Face of the Pre-Raphaelites, Siddal's fame was a remarkable phenomenon: in a time when she was the opposite of the Victorian beauty (she was red-haired, quite tall, and painfully thin), she nonetheless scaled the social ranks to become the unlikely ideal. A pivotal figure in London's artistic world of the mid-nineteenth century, Lizzie's short life ended in a delirium of opium. In this, the first full work devoted solely to Lizzie-her austere beginnings, quick rise to fame, and tragic end-Hawksley brings together the worlds of art and literature with style and verve. Lizzie Siddal was not merely the Pre-Raphaelites' obsession and muse, she was a talented poet and artist in her own right. Her tragic and haunting life story serves as a cautionary tale, offering many parallels to the modern-day world of art, fashion, beauty, and our obsession with what we hold to be the ideal."--Publisher's website

Essential Pre-Raphaelites by Lucinda Hawksley( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1848 a group of seven disillusioned artists, comprising the Rossettis, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Frederic Stephens, Thomas Woolner and James Collinson, formed the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Initially they were ridiculed in the art world for their pretension and subject matter, but ten years after their foundation no self-respecting Victorian would admit to being ignorant of Pre-Raphaelite art. They found a powerful admirer in art critic John Ruskin, and Millais was at the height of his popularity. The movement later began to change direction as new influences were brought to bear on the group: Dante Gabriel Rossetti came to the fore alongside artists such as Walter Howell Deverell and Edward Burne-Jones, as well as William Morris, the founding father of the Arts and Craft movement. [This book] examines the work of the movement, its loosely affiliated personalities, diverse subject-matter and profound effect on nineteenth- and twentieth-century art."--Jacket

Charles Dickens : Dickens' bicentenary, 1812-2012 by Lucinda Hawksley( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Dickens is the definitive illustrated guide to the man and his works. It follows Dickens from early childhood, including his time spent as a child labourer, and looks at how he became the greatest celebrity of his age - and how he still remains recognized as one of England's greatest celebrities, even in the twenty-first century. The book also takes an intimate look at what he was like as a husband, a father, a friend and an employer; at his longing to be an actor, at his travels across North America, his year spent living in Italy and his great love of France. Alongside Dickens himself, readers will meet his fascinating family and his astonishing circle of friends - and will discover when and how life and real-life personalities were imitated in Dickens' art. The cast of characters in Charles Dickens embraces an incredible array of famous - and occasionally infamous - Victorians."--Publisher's description

Katey : the life and loves of Dickens's artist daughter by Lucinda Hawksley( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Katey Dickens was a nineteenth-century artist and socialite, and the beautiful daughter of Charles Dickens. In this biography, Lucinda Hawksley, herself Dickens's great-great-great-granddaughter, recreates the life of an extraordinarily determined girl who defied Victorian convention to live and love as an independent woman." "Blessed with a privileged upbringing in a family that moved between London, France, Switzerland and Italy, Katey pursued her love of painting, acted in her father's plays, modelled for John Everett Millais and, as the daughter of the most famous writer of the time, enjoyed a high profile in Victorian society. Yet she refused to be eclipsed by her father and fought to establish herself as an artist in her own right. Family life in the Dickens household was turbulent and the unhappy atmosphere that followed the eventual breakdown of her parents' marriage drove Katey to marry young. Her first husband was the chronically ailing Charlie Collins, brother of the famous author Wilkie Collins, and theirs was a sexless but otherwise companionable union, while Katey threw herself into a passionate and very un-Victorian affair with celebrated artist Val Prinsep. After Charlie's untimely demise, the widowed Katey married the handsome Italian artist Carlo Perugini, with whom she had fallen deeply in love. Despite the happiness she finally found in her second marriage, Katey often suffered from deep depression, particularly following the death of her beloved father and of her baby. But she remained active, pursuing her career as a painter, championing Charles Dickens's works, and befriending such eminent figures as J.M. Barrie and George Bernard Shaw. Kate Perugini lived to be almost ninety and her artistic prestige, which flourished during her lifetime, still persists to this day."--Jacket
The mystery of Princess Louise : Queen Victoria's rebellious daughter by Lucinda Hawksley( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The secrets of Queen Victoria's sixth child, Princess Louise, may be destined to remain hidden forever. What was so dangerous about this artistic, tempestuous royal that her life has been documented more by rumour and gossip than hard facts? When Lucinda Hawksley started to investigate, often thwarted by inexplicable secrecy, she discovered a fascinating woman, modern before her time, whose story has been shielded for years from public view. Louise was a sculptor and painter, friend to the Pre-Raphaelites and a keen member of the Aesthetic movement. The most feisty of the Victorian princesses, she kicked against her mother's controlling nature and remained fiercely loyal to her brothers - especially the sickly Leopold and the much-maligned Bertie. She sought out other unconventional women, including Josephine Butler and George Eliot, and campaigned for education and health reform and for the rights of women. She battled with her indomitable mother for permission to practice the 'masculine' art of sculpture and go to art college - and in doing so became the first British princess to attend a public school. The rumours of Louise's colourful love life persist even today, with hints of love affairs dating as far back as her teenage years, and notable scandals included entanglements with her sculpting tutor Joseph Edgar Boehm and possibly even her sister Princess Beatrice's handsome husband, Liko. True to rebellious form, she refused all royal suitors and became the first member of the royal family to marry a commoner since the sixteenth century. Spirited and lively, The Mystery of Princess Louise is richly packed with arguments, intrigues, scandals and secrets, and is a vivid portrait of a princess desperate to escape her inheritance

"In a lively and fascinating narrative, Lucinda Hawksley looks at the courageous campaigners who refused to accept that men knew what was best for them. Moving from the publication of Mary Wollstencraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women in 1792 to the battle cries and slogans of the suffragette movement of the early 20th century and the General Election of 1929 (generally knwon as the Flapper Election), we follow the path trodden by many brave women in the quest for equal rights."--Back cover
