Ford Madox Brown : Pre-Raphaelite Pioneer, Hardback

Ford Madox Brown : Pre-Raphaelite Pioneer Hardback


Ford Madox Brown had already pioneered a style of painting which came to be known as Pre-Raphaelite before the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in 1848.

His beautifully observed landscapes anticipated the open-air effects of the Impressionists.

His art was anti-academic, rejecting easy solutions, prettiness, and conventional Victorian formulae.

He depicted children without sentimentality and poor people without condescension.

This major monograph provides a general introduction to Brown's art based on new research; all of his important paintings are included, each one is illustrated and described.
