Summary

Summary

The author discusses the development and characteristics of Victorian painting, setting them within the context of time. He covers the multifarious facets of painting styles, from social realists to fairy painters, whilst not neglecting traditional areas such as marine, landscape, sporting and animal. The various artistic movements- aesthetic, classical, romantic - are all considered. The book combines a study of the two mediums of oil and watercolour in a single volume.
