Abstract:

"Although Pre-Raphaelitism has attracted much critical and scholarly attention in the past decade, there still has been no major reconsideration of the work of William Holman Hunt. In this new study, Landow contends that Hunt's version of Pre-Raphaelitism concerned itself primarily with an elaborate system of painterly symbolism rather than with a photographic realism as has been usualy suposed. Like Ruskin, Hunt believed that a symbolism based on scriptural typology--the method of finding anticipations of Christ in Hebrew history--could produce an ideal art that would solve the problems of Victorian paining. According to Hunt, this elaborate symbolism could simultaneously avoid the dangers of materialism inherent in a realistic style, the dead conventionalism of academic art, and the sentimentality of much contemporary painting"--Jacket.
