Artistic Brotherhoods in the Nineteenth Century

£69.99

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has a gilded title on the spine and the book includes the dust jacket. The cover has no issues barring some very minor wear to some corners and the jacket is the same barring the front flap, which has folded slightly at the top edge. Inside the pages of the book are in very good condition overall and are without issue.

'The nineteenth century saw the emergence of numerous artistic brotherhoods - groups of artists bound together in communal production, sharing spiritual and aesthetic aims. Although it is widely acknowledged that this is a unique feature of the period, there has not previously been a separate study of the phenomenon. This collection of essays provides a thorough and wide-ranging exploration of the issue. Situating artistic brotherhoods within their historical context, it offers unique insights into the social, political, economic and cultural milieu of the nineteenth century. It focuses on the most celebrated and influential brotherhoods, while also bringing to light lesser-known or forgotten artists. The essays explore the artistic fraternity from a wide variety of perspectives, probing issues of gender, identity, professional practices and artistic formation in Europe and the United States. The book investigates the Nazarenes , the Pre-Raphaelites, the Russian Abramatsavo, the Primtifs, the Nabis as well as other leading groups.'
