About This Item

London: Macmillan and Co, 1905. 1st. hardback. Very good, no d/j, both volumes green cloth-bound, gilt-pressed design on cover & spine titling (slightly faded on vol1); text blocks firm, top edge gilt, pages unmarked and crisp; multiple b/w plates and drawings. Vol 1: Inscribed on ffep: ""This book belongs to Kate Holliday, written by her old friend W. Holman Hunt"". Vol 2: tipped in on front paste down, proforma letter, signed W. Holman Hunt.. 8vo (230 x 150 / 9"" x 6""). William Holman Hunt (1827Ð1910) chronicled the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in this well-illustrated two-volume memoir of 1905, controversially presenting himself as the movement's founding father. Popular when first published, it illuminates the search for authenticity of treatment and depth of meaning in his own work and that of Millais, Rossetti and their circle. Stressing the contributions of himself and Millais, Hunt sets out to defend the Brotherhood's ideals, from which he never departed. After his success with The Light of the World, he survived exotic and dangerous travels to create some of the most memorable paintings of the age, such as The Scapegoat (mostly painted by the Dead Sea with a gun at hand) and The Lady of Shalott. The volumes cover the coming together of Millais, Rossetti and their circle, Ruskin's influence, Hunt's journeys to Europe and the Holy Land, his unconventional remarriage and later masterpieces. A polemical 'Retrospect' reasserts the movement's principles.
