Abstract:

Diana Holman-Hunt (25 October 1913 <U+2013> 10 August 1993) was the granddaughter of painter William Holman Hunt, a founder of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. This is the record of a girlhood spent in the homes of her 2 grandmothers. With her maternal grandmother Freeman, in the country, she leads a life of conformity and discipline in the stringent household of a woman who demanded perfection. In London, with her father's mother, the widow of the pre- Raphaelite painter Holman-Hunt, she spent weeks in the dark house which was a shrine to the dead man -- a clutter of paintings, ostrich eggs, and peacock feathers -- a staffless establishment run with an indifference to cleanliness, heat, and food; a respect for modesty and foreign languages; and a reverence, close to canonization, for the dead painter.
