Paperback. 472 pages. Dimensions: 8.5in. x 5.5in. x 1.2in.The celebrated Victorian narrative painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909) was a born raconteur. His two-volume autobiography of 1887 ran to three editions in the same year. The third edition is reissued here, together with its supplementary volume of 1888. Frith was an ideal commentator on his age. He never lost his early interest in literary and historical subjects, and moved in the highest artistic and literary circles.

Synopsis: The celebrated Victorian narrative painter William Powell Frith (1819?1909) was a born raconteur. His two-volume autobiography of 1887 ran to three editions in the same year. The third edition is reissued here, together with its supplementary volume of 1888. Frith was an ideal commentator on his age. He never lost his early interest in literary and historical subjects, and moved in the highest artistic and literary circles. Yet he also saw himself as a man of the people. His most famous works were his 'modern-life' panoramas, Ramsgate Sands (1854), Derby Day (1858) and The Railway Station (1862). Discussing such projects, he reflects on everything from costume to portraiture, art dealers to female artists, and even picture frames. In particular, Volume 3 records the breakdown of the talented Richard Dadd, Frith's admiration for Daniel Maclise, John Tenniel and George du Maurier, and reflections on the vagaries of fashions in art.

Book Description: The celebrated Victorian narrative painter William Powell Frith (1819-1909) published his popular two-volume autobiography in 1887, adding a third volume in 1888. Volume 3 contains much valuable new material, including a chapter on Richard Dadd, and discussions of such great Victorian illustrators as Tenniel and du Maurier.
