Herbert Draper was one of the most successful painters of classical mythologies and elegant portraits, in the period between the turn of the Twentieth Century and the advent of the First World War. His pictures are the archetypes of the Victorian classical revival; dramatic and sensually charged subjects of beautiful maidens and dynamic heroes. Neglected for over half a century, Draper's work has finally been reassessed. He is now regarded as one of the last great painters of classical narratives in late Victorian and Edwardian Britain. Herbert Draper: A Life Study is the first study of Draper's art and life, largely based on previously unstudied material in private archives. Many of the pictures reproduced in this book for the first time are now in private collections and have not been exhibited since Draper's death.
