"This volume is the first general introduction to what was a particularly popular medium in the Victorian era and was, in fact, the preferred form of expression for many artists. It features full-colour masterworks by such major figures as Ruskin, Burne-Jones and Rossetti, along with many lesser-known but respected talents and analyses both the individual works and the way they contributed to the stylistic development of the medium in the period. It is a valuable addition to the scholarship on Victorian art. / Christopher Newall is an independent scholar, writer and curator, and the author of `The Art of Lord Leighton`, also published by Phaidon."-Publisher.
