Description

Ford Madox Brown had already pioneered a style of painting which came to be known as Pre-Raphaelite before the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in 1848. His beautifully observed landscapes anticipated the open-air effects of the Impressionists. His art was anti-academic, rejecting easy solutions, prettiness, and conventional Victorian formulae. He depicted children without sentimentality and poor people without condescension. This major monograph provides a general introduction to Brown's art based on new research; all of his important paintings are included, each one is illustrated and described.

Review

'...an essential addition to the Victorian painting library.’
The Art Newspaper

‘First class’
Richard Dorment, The Daily Telegraph

‘Engaged, perverse... and quirkily humorous, [the catalogue] merits a distinctive place in Victorian art history.’
Jan Marsh, TLS

‘…anyone who studies the four informative essays and splendid catalogue in Treuherz's book will understand and appreciate Brown's work much better, and be far less likely to dismiss him as merely 'interesting' … This book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in nineteenth-century art, the Pre-Raphaelites, and specifically Victorian narrative painting. For those with a special interest in Ford Madox Brown himself, it is an indispensable one.’
The Victorian Web
