Book Description

1 July 2012 National Museums Liverpool
Eleanor Fortescue-Brickdale (1872-1945) was an accomplished painter, illustrator and designer whose artistic life bridged the Victorian and modern worlds. Her work was much influenced by the Pre-Raphaelite artists whose love of detail, colour, symbolism, storytelling and nature was so hugely influential on mid Victorian Britain. Eleanor's own work carried the Pre-Raphaelite style forward into the 20th century. Indeed she became known as 'the last Pre-Raphaelite'. Despite her huge popularity in her own time, Eleanor's work has been neglected since her death in 1945. This book is the first monograph on the artist. It is the result of extensive research by Pamela Gerrish Nunn, whose work on Pre-Raphaelite women artists has done so much to re-assess the art history of the Victorian period. Here, the author takes us on a journey through Eleanor's training, career and achievements to re-establish her as an important and fascinating figure in the history of Pre-Raphaelite art. Published by Liverpool University Press with National Museums Liverpool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the unabridged edition! 23 May 2013
By jpcooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Four stars might be a bit generous but whenever a neglected artist, of notable talent, is re-introduced to the public some consideration must be paid. This book is really not much more than a tease. And maybe that was its intent. There are less than a hundred pages here and probably 50% of those are text. I admit, I was unfamiliar with this artist and enjoyed all of the images this catalogue presented. The problem is there were so few to enjoy. The cover, incidentally, is the best of the lot.
I would be willing to accept this book's shortcomings if the price weren't so high. For thirty bucks there should have been more there there. Were I to have viewed this book prior to ordering I likely would have passed. This, again, is not a comment on the merit of Fortescue-Brickdale's works (all quite beautiful) but this softbound booklet really is no more than a twenty dollar production.
I guess, after all is said and done, I wouldn't return this catalogue as there is little else available on this artist. Should another more substantial effort be forthcoming I would definitely consider it.
Taschen, Ullmann, Parkstone among other publishing houses produce large, quality, hardbound, coffee-table back-breakers at close to this price. Maybe they've spoiled us?
