En Résumé :

Catalogue raisonné du Pré-Raphaelite anglais Ford Madox Brown. Coffret comprennant 2 volumes en anglais.

Ford Madox Brown (1821-1893) is known predominantly for his close association with the Pré-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and for his masterpiece, The Last of England (1852-5), with

its poignant imagery of a young emigrant couple aboard ship taking their last sight of home. Admired by the young Dante Gabriel Rossetti, he was introduced by him to the artists of the PRB, an association that confirmed his own interests in out-door light effects and led to

the glowing palette of his great paintings ot the 1850s. His interests embraced decorative design,

and in the 1860s he was a founder member of the novv famous derorating firm of Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co.

This fully illustrated catalogue provides the first complete coverage of all of Madox Brown's work (including a section on frame designs contributed by Lynn Roberts). Drawing on the artist's diary and largely unpublished correspondence with associates and patrons, Mary Bennett provides a fascinating insight into his ideas and practice.

Mary Bennett was formerly Keeper of British Art at the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. She originated three groundbreaking exhibitions in the 1960s on Ford Madox Brown, John Everett Millais and William Holman Hunt, creating the present-day interest in the Pre-Raphaelite circle.
