9780300079371: Frederic Leighton: Antiquity, Renaissance, Modernity (Studies in British Art)

Liberated from the constraints of tradition, the Pre-Raphaelites of mid-Victorian England produced distinctive representations of nature and society in paintings remarkable for their compositional vitality and hallucinatory effects of color. This lavishly illustrated book provides a fresh appraisal of the Pre-Raphaelite artists and their radical departure from artistic conventions. Tim Barringer explores the meanings so richly encoded in Pre-Raphaelite paintings and analyzes key pictures and their significance within the complex social and cultural matrix of nineteenth-century Britain. In chapters devoted to core themes, the author discusses such artists as John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Ford Madox Brown and their engagement with medieval revivalism, nature worship, issues of class and gender, and the reconciliation of the religious image and realism.

Barringer draws on an imaginative selection of paintings, drawings, and contemporary photographs to suggest that the dynamic energy of Pre-Raphael-ism arose from paradoxes at its heart. Past and present, historicism and modernity, symbolism and realism, as well as tensions between city and country, man and woman, worker and capitalist, colonizer and colonized―all appear within Pre-Raphaelite art. Focusing on these issues, the author casts new light on the Pre-Raphaelites and their innovative work.

About the Author:

Tim Barringer is assistant professor in the Department of the History of Art at Yale University. Elizabeth Prettejohn is a lecturer at the University of Plymouth in England.

From Library Journal:

This volume comprises 14 scholarly papers, many of which are an outgrowth of a conference convened by the editors at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Leighton (1830-96), a president of the Royal Academy of Arts, is a difficult artist to assess and a highly controversial one; during his lifetime reviewers attacked his work as flamboyant and effeminate and as "empty pomp." The contributors attempt to examine his work from a variety of angles under three main headings: his use of aesthetic elements from antiquity; his use of Renaissance elements, notably costumes and settings; and his relation to modernity in his many activities. The last of these headings seems to be the most difficult perspective to assess. The volume does provide a very useful and extremely important examination of Leighton's work in the context of his age and some interesting sidelights into his home, his interest in music, and his promotion of new painting. This beautiful volume will necessarily appeal to the specialist.AMartin Chasin, Adult Inst., Bridgeport, CT

Descripción Yale University Press. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Frederic Leighton: Antiquity, Renaissance, Modernity, Tim Barringer, Elizabeth Prettejohn, This original collection of writings reinterprets the art of Frederic Leighton (1830-1896), challenging the view that limits him to the category of 'Victorian artist' and revealing his broader significance in the history of modern art. The book is the first to extend the discussion of Leighton beyond his life and works to address such current concerns as gender and sexuality, the artist's identity and self-positioning, and Leighton's position in relation to Aestheticism and Modernism. The contributors argue that not only does Leighton's profound commitment to the ancient and renaissance past not exclude him from an important role in modern art, but indeed it assures his position there.
