Men at Work: Art and Labour in Victorian Britain
Tim J. Barringer
0300103808
January 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
For artists of the increasingly mechanized Victorian age, questions about the meaning and value of labour presented a series of urgent problems: Is work a moral obligation or a religious duty? Must labour be the preserve of men alone? Does the amount of work bestowed on a painting affect its value? Should art celebrate wholesome rural work or reveal the degradations of the industrial workplace? In this highly original book, Tim Barringer considers how artists and theorists addressed these questions and what their solutions reveal about Victorian society and culture.

Based on extensive new research, Men at Work offers a compelling study of the image as a means of exploring the relationship between labour and art in Victorian Britain. Barringer arrives at a major reinterpretation of the art and culture of...


Chapters from Childhood
Juliet M. Soskice

March 1994
Paperback

From Publishers Weekly
Turtle Point has unearthed a luminous literary and historical treasure that was first published in 1921 to rave reviews. Soskice (nee Hueffer) was Ford Madox Ford's younger sister; Christina, William Michael and Dante Gabriel Rossetti's niece; and the granddaughter of another famed pre-Raphaelite painter, Ford Madox Brown. This intimate, simply told memoir captures the vital pre-adolescent years of a spirited girl on a universal quest. She searches for something to believe in because ``believing in nothing at all is like walking up a long staircase with no bannisters to hold on to.'' Delightfully willful and curious, the young narrator questions everything that she doesn't understand as she tries to make sense of the world and find her place in it. Her naivete only widens her perspective and gives her the...

Julien Desrochers, Fabula
"...a powerful interpretive matrix for understanding world literature--one that renders modernism and postcolonial African literature comprehensible".

Review
Michael Hardt, Duke University, coauthor of "Empire and Multitude" : Masterfully shuttling back and forth between Europe and Africa, Nicholas Brown gives us an exciting new perspective on modernism that is as philosophically astute as it is politically engaged.
Neil Larsen, University of California, Davis, author of "Modernism and Hegemony" : An enormously significant contribution to the fields of modernist and postcolonial literary and cultural studies. Nicholas Brown aims to 're-constellate' modernism and African literature within a single framework, and he does so with great success. Along the way, however,...

Pre-Raphaelite Cats
Susan Herbert
0500019126
September 1999
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Susan Herbert's feline versions of famous paintings have found an appreciative audience among both cat and art lovers. It was inevitable that she should be attracted to the works of the Pre-Raphaelite painters, whose heyday was in the latter half of the nineteenth century, but whose popularity has reached new heights today. Well-known works by such artists as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Edward Burne-Jones, and William Holman Hunt can be viewed in a new and entrancing way when their protagonists are endearing cats. The Beggar Maid, "more beautiful than day" in Tennyson's poem, takes on a particularly touching relationship with King Cophetua, while Medea gives new meaning to the word enchantress as she prepares the ingredients for a spell. And were ever two creatures so frightened and so abandoned as the...


A Pre-Raphaelite Marriage: The Lives and Works of Marie Spartali Stillman & William James Stillman
David B. Elliot

Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
As occasional model for no less than Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones, Marie Spartali Stillman (1844-1927) remains a well-known face of the Pre-Raphealite era. Born into a well-to-do Anglo-Greek family in London, she was greatly admired as one of ‘The Three Graces’, alongside Aglaia Coronio and Maria Zambaco, and photographed several times by Julia Margaret Cameron. Her circle of close friends included, among others, William Michael Rossetti, Lucy Madox-Brown Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, George Frederick Watts, Jane Morris, the Ionides family, and James Abbott MacNeill Whistler. What few people now realise is that behind the enigmatic face lay talent and determination. A gifted artist in her own right, Marie persuaded her father to allow her to study under Ford Madox Brown. She was a prolific...
