Title

The Lost Pre-Raphaelite - George Wilson; His Life, Work and Associates

Synopsis

A biography of the life and work of the Victorian Scottish artist, George Wilson, who died in 1890 aged 41, just as he was approaching the height of his career. Wilson was a strict adherent to the original Pre-Raphaelite principles, long after these had been abandoned by most 'followers' for more commercial ideals. Frequently described as a 'born painter', George Wilson was a true 'artist's artist', who painted purely because he loved to paint – almost entirely from nature, which he loved equally with the romantic poets and the classics

This unique book is the first investigation of Wilson's life and work since the end of 19th century, when he was included in Percy Bate's benchmark and immediately post-contemporary book, 'The English Pre-Raphaelite Painters'.  Since then, Wilson has become one of the most enigmatic of the 'lost' artists of the period, and most commentators would agree that a publication about his life and work is well overdue. This book includes a fully illustrated catalogue raisonné of all Wilson's recorded works, including many that are now believed lost

304 pages, with 70 full colour and 40 black and white illustrations.  8.5" x 11" x 0.8".  Soft cover
