Drawing on recent theoretical developments in gender and men?s studies, Pre-Raphaelite Masculinities shows how the ideas and models of masculinity were constructed in the work of artists and writers associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement. Paying particular attention to the representation of non-normative or alternative masculinities, the contributors take up the multiple versions of masculinity in Dante Gabriel Rossetti?s paintings and poetry, masculine violence in William Morris?s late romances, nineteenth-century masculinity and the medical narrative in Ford Madox Brown?s Cromwell on His Farm, accusations of ?perversion? directed at Edward Burne-Jones?s work, performative masculinity and William Bell Scott?s frescoes, the representations of masculinity in Pre-Raphaelite illustration, aspects of male chastity in poetry and art, Tannh?er as a model for Victorian manhood, and masculinity and British imperialism in Holman Hunt?s The Light of the World. Taken together, these essays demonstrate the far-reaching effects of the plurality of masculinities that pervade the art and literature of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.

"Re-framing the Pre-Raphaelites is a collection of essays by leading scholars in the field of Pre-Raphaelite studies. Some essays are case studies of well-known visual and literary works by founder members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood; others explore meanings generated by Pre-Raphaelite works on specific themes and define the cultural work done by them. There are essays on John Everett Millais, William Holman Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Joanna Boyce, Edward Burne-Jones and other artists associated with the Pre-Raphaelites. Among the subjects discussed are gender, class, ethnicity, national and regional identity, patronage, the position of the professional woman artist, the nude, images of women and the Victorian cult of death. Some of the authors treat their chosen subject in a mainly art-historical context with a focus on new scholarly research. A number of the essays, in contrast, are informed by post-structuralist, feminist and psychoanalytic theories. These theoretical approaches lead the reader to consider both familiar and lesser-known works in new, and often controversial, frameworks and should provoke further theoretical and historical debate in this field." "Several of the essays are based on papers given at the Pre-Raphaelite session of the 1994 Conference of the Association of Art Historians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Pre-Raphaelite Art of the Victorian Novel

Narrative Challenges to Visual Gendered Boundaries

Page: 208

View: 385

A provocative interdisciplinary study of the Victorian novel and Pre-Raphaelite art, this book offers a new understanding of Victorian novels through Pre-Raphaelite paintings. Concentrating on Elizabeth Gaskell, Wilkie Collins, George Eliot, and Thomas Hardy and aligning each novelist with specific painters, this work interprets narrative redrawings of Pre-Raphaelite paintings within a range of cultural contexts as well as alongside recent theoretical work on gender. Letters, reviews, and journals convincingly reinforce the contentions about the novels and their connection with paintings. Featuring color reproductions of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, this book reveals the great achievement of Pre-Raphaelite art and its impact on the Victorian novel. Arguing for the direct relationship between Pre-Raphaelite painting and the Victorian novel, this book fills a gap in the currently available literature devoted to the Victorian novel, the Pre-Raphaelites, and the connection of Pre-Raphaelite art to Victorian poetry. Visual readings of the Victorian novel channel the twenty-first-century readers' desire for the visual into the exploration of Pre-Raphaelite art in the Victorian novel, in the process offering fresh insights into the representation of gender in Victorian culture. Through a textual and a visual journey, this work reveals a new approach to the Victorian novel and Pre-Raphaelite art with profound implications for the study of both.
