Small folio (11 3/4 x 10 1/2"). 384pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over olive cloth."A spectacular book on the most popular era of British painting from 1837 to 1914 by the world's leading authority in the field. The Victorian era and its aftermath were the backdrop to one of the great flowerings of British art. The genre arose from a ferment of activity from which the Pre-Raphaelites emerged along with Leighton's luxurious classical mythologies, as well as a fascinating diversity in other artistic fields. Christopher Wood, a leading expert who has not only studied but also brought, owned, and sold examples of everything he writes about, takes us through the artistry of Burne-Jones, Rossetti, Waterhouse, and others to show the succession of movements characterizing the Victorian period" (from the publishers). Book is new, and stil in shrinkwrap. (Inventory #: 41593)
