Victorian Figurative Painting: Domestic Life and the Contemporary Social Scene
Andreas Papadakis, 2000 - 208
"Genre painters may have lacked the serious intentions of the Pre-Raphaelites and the Social Realists, but their work is of equal cultural interest; not least because, in response to the demands of their patrons, genre painters constructed a veritable portrait of the age. The very appeal to middle-brow taste gives genre a special value, a claim eminently borne out by such striking images as Sophie Anderson's No Walk Today or Tissot's The Bridesmaid." "Nothing encapsualtes the sentiments, ideals and obsessions of the Victorians so powerfully as paintings like these. The aim of this book is to give them the attention they so richly deserve."--BOOK JACKET.
