Featuring more than 100 works of art from celebrated Pre-Raphaelite artists, this fascinating new research into Pre-Raphaelite painters and collectors positions Liverpool as the Victorian art capital of the north. This book accompanies the exhibition Pre-Raphaelites: Beauty and Rebellion, held at the Walker Art Gallery in 2016.
Containing new research on Pre-Raphaelite patrons and painters in Liverpool, including the collector John Miller and the artist John Ingle Lee, this book examines the relationship between artists such as Ford Maddox Brown and Rossetti and their Liverpool contemporaries, collectors and the institutions that welcomed them, notably the forward-thinking Liverpool Academy. It is an account of an important aspect of British artistic culture in the 19th century, including brand new insights into important patrons and artists which have never been revealed.
Author Christopher Newall is a noted writer, art historian and curator, specialising in 19th-century British art. The book also features insights from contributing writers Ann Bukantas and David Taylor.
