About this title
"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."About the Author:
"Christopher Wood is Britain's leading writer and broadcaster on the subject of Victorian art. For thirteen years he worked for the London auction house Christie's, becoming director of nineteenth-century paintings. Presently he runs his own gallery in London, specializing in Pre-Raphaelite and Victorian art."
