Paintings from the Reign of Victoria by Tim Barringer
Book DescriptionThe catalogue of a touring exhibition which showcases sixty extraordinary paintings illustrating some of the highest achievements in figurative and landscape art of the nineteenth century. Acquired by Thomas Holloway to enhance the women's college he had founded in 1879, the collection includes many of the most visible and praised "modern canvasses" in London in the 1880s. From scenes of contemporary life, as well as historical events, to landscapes, animal studies, and marine subjects, the exhibition illustrates the Victorian belief in art as the ultimate civilizing influence. Art was seen as a teaching tool with visual beauty as its medium, and Thomas Holloway sought out only the best examples, regardless of cost. Included are seminal works by artists such as Sir Edwin Landseer, William Powell Frith, Sir John Everett Millais, David Roberts, and Edwin Long.

David Hockney: 82 Portraits and 1 Still-Life, Hardback (June 2016)
Brings together the body of work by David Hockney, perhaps the versatile British artist of the last century. Following his sweeping exploration of landscape in the Royal Academy's galleries in 2012, this title looks at the portraits he has been painting in the last few years - the subjects of which are friends, family and art-world luminaries.

Reading the Pre-Raphaelites, Paperback (February 2012)» View all books by Tim Barringer
Noted for its vivid colours, elaborate use of symbols, and dedication to close observation of the natural world, the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists combines a deep engagement with the past and a modern realism that exemplifies the concerns of the age of steam travel. This survey traces the history of the Pre-Raphaelite movement.
