The new painting of the 1860s : between the pre-Raphaelites and the aesthetic movement by Allen Staley ( Book )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This handsome volume is the first authoritative survey of one of the most intriguing periods of British art--the radically innovative decade of the 1860s. The book explores new developments in English painting of this period, focusing on the early work of Edward Burne-Jones, Frederic Leighton, Albert Moore, Edward Poynter, Simeon Solomon, and James McNeill Whistler, as well as on paintings by Frederick Sandys and the older G. F. Watts, and by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his Pre-Raphaelite colleagues Holman Hunt and John Everett Millais. Allen Staley argues that engagement in the decorative arts, particularly by Burne-Jones, Moore, and Poynter at the outset of their careers, led to a transcending of traditional expectations of painting, making abstract formal qualities, or beauty for beauty's sake, the main goal. Rather than being about what it depicts, the painting itself becomes its own subject. The New Painting of the 1860s examines the interplay among the artists and the shared ambitions underlying their works, giving impetus to what would soon come to be known as the Aesthetic Movement
The Pre-Raphaelite landscape by Allen Staley ( Book )
7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this completely revised and updated second edition, Staley takes into account important paintings that have recently come to light, as well as current understandings of the Pre-Raphaelite movement and its legacy. The author provides a comprehensive account of the background and formation of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, the role of landscape in major Pre-Raphaelite figurative paintings, and the emergence and impact of a school of Pre-Raphaelite landscape painting as well as its place in the wider tradition of British landscape painting ... The important Pre-Raphaelite figures, John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, and Ford Madox Brown, are discussed, as are the main landscape specialists affected by the movement: Thomas Seddon, George Price Boyce, John William Inchbold, and John Brett. Attention is paid to the significant influence of John Ruskin and his active involvement with many of the artists." "This spectacular volume, enhanced by over 150 colour illustrations, is the definitive study of its subject and will provide both visual and intellectual stimulation for anyone drawn to the work of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and its followers"--Jacket
