Description
Exploring the public art and private demons of Ford Madox Brown, one of the finest but least understood among the Pre-Raphaelite artists, this book is as much about the four women central to his life: his two wives and models, Elisabeth Bromley and Emma Hill, and his two secret loves, artist Marie Spartali and author Mathilde Blind. These are not silent muses hidden in the shadow of the "Master," notes Angela Thirlwell; all four were remarkable women, from very different backgrounds, striving for self-expression in an age that sought to suppress them. Thirwell, also the author of William and Lucy: The Other Rossettis, explores a fascinating area of Victorian bohemianism, telling us much about women's journey towards modern roles.

"The narrative pulse never weakens ... [in this] wonderfully illuminating study of a whole slice of 19th-century cultural, social and intellectual life."Guardian (London)
