Abstract:

This volume celebrates the artists and subjects of Britain's Victorian Age. The Victorian era of British history was the period of Queen Victoria's reign from 1837 until 1901. It was a long period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and national self-confidence for Britain. This collection draws on paintings and sculpture from the permanent collection of the Royal Academy of Arts in London, providing an overview of the most important artists of the period. Eminent scholars offer insights into their artistic subjects, styles, and techniques, as well as into the role of the Royal Academy in the age of Queen Victoria. More than 70 works of art are cataloged in depth. This book also includes biographies of the artists featured, each illustrated with a contemporary photograph.
