My grandfather, his wives and loves by Diana Holman-Hunt( Book )
13 editions published between 1969 and 1987 in English and held by 530 libraries worldwide
"William Holman Hunt was a central figure in the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, a painter still best known for such works as 'The light of the world' an allegory on our failure to follow the teachings of Jesus. Hunt's private life, however, as unveiled by his grand-daughter, was a combination of passions galore, of sensuality substituing for sense, and of an eccentricity typical of the Victorian ability to combine public morality with private pleasure."--Back cover

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
