This text presents an overview of one of the most fertile and exuberant periods in the history of art. It embraces not only the UK but also the English-speaking countries linked to England by the cultural ties of empire and emigration. Long out of fashion, Victorian painting is now enjoyed in its own right. This book is divided by themes into 22 chapters, and features anecdotes and colour illustrations from the period. It can also serve as a reference work as it features the work of some lesser-known artists, as well as the famous and well-loved images.

Review quote

'After [a] long decline the reputation of Victorian artists is probably higher now than it has ever been and this splendid book celebrates this fact in no uncertain terms. ... Without being overly scholarly this is an excellent guide to the art of an era that above all celebrated wealth, creativity, energy and self-confidence.' Country Landowner 'Anyone entranced by the Lloyd Webber show at the Royal Academy should acquire this massive paperback ...reproductions are excellent, and the text is quirkily informative' The Independent
