Ford Madox Brown by Angela Thirlwell

Book Description

"Ford Madox Brown: The Unofficial Pre-Raphaelite" is a major volume which throws new light on this important artist, who though never officially a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, was however a central figure within it. The Madox Brown collection at Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery ranges in date from the early 1840s to the 1890s and includes sketch and study drawings, watercolours, stained glass designs, wood engravings as well as paintings and archive material. This volume includes three essays by leading Madox Brown specialists. The first, by Angela Thirlwell, sets his works in the context of his life. The second, by Tim Barringer, studies the difficulty of categorising Madox Brown's work, and the final essay, by Laura MacCulloch, looks specifically at Madox Brown's illustrations. This volume illustrates 42 selected drawings and works on paper, accompanied by an entry, including full specifications, provenance, inscriptions and an extended caption.

Rosalind by Angela Thirlwell Rosalind, Hardback (April 2016)

The first of its kind - a biography of Rosalind, Shakespeare's greatest comic heroine.

Ford Madox Brown by Angela Thirlwell Ford Madox Brown, Hardback (September 2011)

Ford Madox Brown had already pioneered a style of painting which came to be known as Pre-Raphaelite before the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was founded in 1848. His beautifully observed landscapes anticipated the open-air effects of the Impressionists. This title provides a general introduction to Brown's art based on fresh research.

Into the Frame by Angela Thirlwell Into the Frame, Paperback (February 2011)

Madox Brown, who grew up in France and Belgium before he came to England and won fame with paintings like 'The Last of England', was always an outsider, and the women he loved also burst out of stereotypes. Their striving for self-expression, in an age that sought to suppress them, tells us much more about women's journey towards modern roles.
