Abstract:

"This is the first comprehensive history devoted to the art of Ford Madox Brown (1821-93), in which his paintings establish him as a major figure in the most important new art movement of Victorian England, Pre-Raphaelitism. The book presents a new explanation of the development and basic aims of Pre-Raphaelite art as a whole and offers a revealing discussion of the power and importance of the humorous vein and negative spirit that run throughout Brown's work. It also ties Brown's realist approach to British decorative taste at mid-century and redefines his place in the Aesthetic Movement, a cultural trend that dominated the latter half of the nineteenth century. In addition, the artist's socialist leanings and nationalistic tendencies, expressed in depictions of workers, children, women, and religious scenes, are set out more fully than in any previous literature on the artist."--BOOK JACKET.
