|Responsibility:||Nancy Rose Marshall.|
London was the quintessential modern city of the 19th century, and its artists were the first to rise to the challenge of depicting the many facets of this new world. This title draws on artists' writings, arts criticism, popular poetry and more to paint a picture of London during this critical time in its economic and artistic development.
