First edition. An informative and richly illustrated study of British painting and literature, which reveals how the literary taste of the day was reflected, sometimes controversially, on the walls of London's annual art exhibitions. It contains a dozen chapters that constitute the narrative portion of the book, and is followed by Parts Two and Three which are comprised of a convenient guide to the art histories of each of Shakespeares plays and of the works of some thirty other authors. A finding-list of reproductions of literary paintings and a bibliography will help readers who are interested in learning more about this neglected subject. Illustrated and indexed. xxvi, ii , 528 pages. cloth, dust jacket.. small 4to..
