This illuminating volume explores a century in British painting that produced an enormous variety of work, ranging from the beginnings of Romanticism in the late 18th century to the British adoption of impressionism in the late 19th century. Dividing this prolific period into nine sections, the work of each artist is discussed, analyzed, and presented in biographical context. With longer sections devoted to such maior figures as Lawrence, Turner, Constable, Rossetti, Leighton, and Whistler, the artists are placed in the framework of their historical, social, and economic backgrounds. The majority of the paintings and drawings that are examined are handsomely reproduced in more than 300 plates, making this an excellent choice for students, connoisseurs, and collectors as well as anyone interested in British art. Among Luke Herrmann's books is J.M.W. Turner Watercolours and Drawings.
