Painting Out of the Ordinary by David H. Solkin
Book DescriptionAt the height of the Napoleonic Wars, a new generation of painters led by the precociously talented David Wilkie took London's art world by storm. Their novel approach to the depiction of everyday life marked the beginning a trajectory that links the art of the Age of Revolution with the postmodern culture of today. What emerged from the imagery of Wilkie and other early 19th-century British genre painters--among them William Mulready, Edward Bird, and the controversial watercolorist Thomas Heaphy--was a sense that common people were increasingly bound up with the exceptional events of history, that traditional boundaries between country and city were melting away, and that a more regularized and dynamic present was everywhere encroaching upon the customary patterns of the past.
