22 editions published between 1977 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By weaving together social history and literary history, Hewison shows by anecdote and example how writers, poets, and painters in Britain endured the war. After their heroic struggles against Fascism in the 1930s ended in defeat, writers found themselves without a role as the whole nation confronted the harsh realities of world war. Political, material, and psychological conditions conspired against them--and yet out of this atmosphere bordering on despair a flourishing literary society based in Soho developed; writers and artists met for the first time with a sense of common intellectual and creative identity. And writers found that they were not alone in discovering that under siege conditions, art, music, and painting were more--not less--important"--Jacket

Ruskin, Turner, and the pre-Raphaelites by Robert Hewison( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Ruskin was the first critic to make his reputation by championing contemporary art: first by defending Turner, in his book Modern Painters, and then by giving his decisive support to the avant-garde, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. He bacame one of the defining voices of the nineteenth century, engaging not only in the discussion of art and architecture, but in the social issues of his age. Ruskin, Turner and the Pre-Raphaelites, which marks the centenary of Ruskin's death, recovers his role as a contemporary critic by bringing together many of the masterpieces that he wrote about, and exploring his personal links with some of the greatest painters of the Victorian period. He was also an artist in his own right, and Ruskin's finest drawings are used to demonstrate the arguments of a critic for whom 'All great art is praise.' Also featured are many works that were in Ruskin's own art collection"--Page [4] of cover
