Victorian Painting book.

Victorian Painting (Paperback). Lionel Lambourne (author). Without being overly scholarly this is an excellent guide to the art of an era that above all celebrated wealth, creativity, energy and self-confidence. Reproductions are excellent, and the text is quirkily informative. -The Independent, 50 Best Books for Christmas.

Long regarded as a backwater of sentiment and outmoded academic convention that was bypassed by the mainstream of development in Western art, Victorian painting is now enjoyed in its own right. Unfettered by old prejudices, Lionel Lambourne presents a vivid panorama of an age of unparalleled energy and creativity. Wealth, optimism, education and self-confidence created a huge demand for art and a remarkable array of talent emerged to meet it.

I can only agree with the positive comments of the other reviewers who found Lambourne's encyclopedic survey of Victorian painting to be a treat from start to finish. Above all it will come as a revelation to anyone who has accepted the view that the Victorian artists, with the exception of the Pre-Raphaelites, were an uninteresting lot, mostly "illustrators" who turned out hackneyed works of little interest to today's viewer. In fact, the era was replete with wonderfully talented artists who produced a large number of fine paintings well worth any art lover's time and attention. And Lambourne's sympathetic, straightforward writing style is pitch-perfect, to boot.

The awful events of World War I cast a destructive pall over Victorian art, which was dismissed, ridiculed, and condemned for a purported sentimentality that suddenly seemed monstrously false and hypocritical. That was a deeply unfair. No one foresaw, or could have foreseen, the course of history and painted with reference to the wretched events to come. Surely there now should be sufficient historical distance to allow these works to be judged and enjoyed according to their merits.

Christopher Wood is undoubtedly an expert in Victorian Art!
This book is truly a journey through the Victorian Period, connecting with schools that were part or directly "woven in" to Victorian painting.
Its chapters are not necessarily bound by time-frame but by topic, which makes it easier to keep the over-all view on the complexity of Victorian art and times. It is written very well, lots of info and in a flowing style, keeping the text short and straight to the point, but enough to answer all important questions and give some time to some of the most influential and individual artists, with a brief over all life-story and many great examples of their works, as well as some important historical notes - so (as I saw here on the reviews) This is not JUST a picture book but more an encyclopedia on Victorian Art. Who only wants to look at pictures will find many great ones in there but will truly miss the essence if not reading the text that belongs in there to give one the depth of what these paintings and their creators were all about! If there is one draw back it's those images that are only black and white - although many of those, one can find online nower days! This is a MUST have for anyone who loves not only Victorian art, but simply great art in general - 5 stars all the way!

This is really more of a history book; while it contains a very reasonable number of color reproductions (very good ones), it also contains quite a few black and white illustrations.

Chapters were easy to follow, and it was extremely thorough in its scope. Well worth purchasing if you are interested at all in the history of Victorian art.

Down side: offered "like new;" slip cover had torn corners, and the introduction page had something that looked very much like dried scrambled eggs stuck to it. Other than that, I couldn't find fault with it.

Big book, great reproductions. So much territory covered (Pre Raphaelite, Classic, Symbolists, Historic), something for everyone and well worth the price. I have spent hours looking at and reading this book

A heavy book with beautiful photographs. I used this as a textbook for my Victorian Art History class. Could easily double as a coffee table book. Reading content was ok, I've read better but the quality of printing made up for it.

The quality of the photographs is very high. I have not read many of the articles and therefore will not be able to comment on them.

Victorian Painting by Phaidon books is a comprehensive and exhaustive study on the wide gamut of art work created over the span of the Victorian Era, covering a multitude of subject matter and movements, from Romantic Realism to Symbolism and more.

I love the book for its expansive content, well over 500 pages of big and beautifully reproduced paintings. It certainly helps that the art work created over this period include some of my favourite movements and art groups - Romanticism, Realism, Symbolism and groups like the Pre-Raphaelites.

The size ( 9.8 x 1.7 inches ) of the book is big enough such that no single painting is spread across two pages, preserving the integrity and allowing the reader to fully immerse in each piece of art work.

I browse this book from time to time when I need inspiration, and it gives me the kick I need every time. The images shown on my blog are but a very small sampling of the amazing art work you can find inside. I give this book my highest recommendations.

p.s - the version I reviewed is the soft cover. If you have the cash to spare I suggest getting the hard cover version - the spine binding is much more robust, which is important to preserve such a heavy book and browsing is much easier as you can open up the book much wider.
