9780521438414: The Art of the Brontës

This is the first full-scale study of the drawings and paintings of the Brontë sisters and their brother, Branwell, including the first catalogue of all known Brontë illustrations, published and unpublished. The Art of the Brontës comprises 400 illustrated entries, recording such details as medium, dating, provenance, sources, style, and arguments for attribution; and documenting many previously unknown drawings and paintings. In addition, a sequence of narrative chapters provides new material on each of the four Brontë siblings and their relationships to the visual arts, suggesting ways in which their experience of drawing influenced their writing. An annotated and illustrated catalogue which is also a work of scholarly criticism, this publication is a landmark in Brontë studies and in the fields of nineteenth-century literature and painting generally.

Book Description:

'Christine Alexander and Jane Sellars have done their work faultlessly. Scholarly and exhaustive, this book will prove a valuable resource to anyone interested in the Brontës. The vast majority of the sketches, paintings and doodles that fill these pages have never been published before, let alone been so painstakingly annotated. Here we have a comprehensive cataloguing of hitherto unavailable, unknown material which throws astonishing new light on familiar territory. Our view of the Brontës will never be the same again.' Literary Review
