Victorian Painting presents a rich panorama of one of the most fertile and exuberant periods in the history of art. It embraces not only the UK but also the English-speaking countries linked to England by cultural ties of empire and emigration, such as the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Long out of fashion, Victorian painting is now wholeheartedly enjoyed in its own right. Unfettered by old prejudices, Lionel Lambourne presents a vivid overview of an age of unparalleled energy and creativity. Divided by themes into twenty-two chapters and written with a light touch, full of illuminating anecdotes and with 600 colour illustrations, Victorian Painting is beautiful, entertaining and informative.
It is also a valuable reference work, for in addition to many famous and well-loved images, it presents a wealth of fine work by lesser-known artists, demonstrating the sheer range and depth of talent that the age produced.
