5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to know about Holman Hunt, 17 Nov 2006
This review is from: William Holman Hunt: Volume 1 & 2: A Catalogue Raisonne (The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art) (Hardcover)
This book is the first comprehensive account of Holman Hunt's work. It starts with a succinct introduction, giving an overview of his life and work which can be recommended to anyone, whether a newcomer to the Pre-Raphaelites, or an aficionado.The book then gives full details of all his paintings and drawings. It is full of fascinating insights and new information, based on detailed research into his life and a close reading of all the beautifully painted fine details in his pictures. The book is a pleasure to handle, elegantly designed with masses of attractive colour reproductions which do justice to Hunt's genius with vivid colour. Hunt was always trying something new and his paintings are full of meaning, expressive but also visually rich. It is a revelation to see the variety of work Hunt produced in addition to the well known works such as the Scapegoat and The Shadow of Death.
