about this item

After a long and distinguished career, Waterhouse (1849-1917), was relegated to the periphery of art history by mainstream criticism between his death and the 1950s, says Cavallaro, but now stands as a favorite among Victorian painting connoisseurs, art lovers, and the general public. He argues here that Waterhouse's art prioritizes color both as the keystone of an aesthetic vision informed by an original concept of formalism, and as the essence of a specific worldview predicated on a generous recognition life's metamorphic elusiveness. Among his topics are color and aestheticism, narrative color, color and desire, and color in decor and dress. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
