Synopsis

This book explores the representation of the classical world by painters in the wake of important 19th century developments and discoveries in classical scholarship and archaeology, as played from the mid-Victorian period to the second decade of the twentieth century. The central aims are to identify and interpret artists' choices of ancient textual and archaeological source material; to investigate significant relationships between particular works and contemporary literature and society; and to situate Victorian classicism in the visuals arts within the practices of Victorian painting and the classical tradition.

Rosemary Julia Barrow is Lecturer in Classical Art and Reception at Roehampton University.
