George Lance : Victorian Master of Still Life, Hardback Book

George Lance : Victorian Master of Still Life Hardback


George Lance (1802-1864), a pupil of B.R. Haydon, a titanic figure in the Regency art world, brought new vibrancy to still life painting in the early Victorian period.

In his seminal work Victorian Painting (1966) Graham Reynolds stated that the revival of still life painting, as an artist's main preoccupation, was effected almost single-handedly by Lance.

Over one hundred years earlier J.M.W. Turner had expressed the view that Lance was one of the three greatest colourists of his era.

Lavishly illustrated with Lance's works and detailing other aspects of his life, this book gives a rounded picture of the man, not just the artist and will serve as the definitive record of the life of a much under-appreciated painter.
