Victorian Painting - Modern Life

Christopher Wood demonstrates how Victorian painting consisted of much more than wistful maidens and knights in armor. Painters turned for inspiration to what they saw around them. They incorporated visual clues in their pictures for the public to seek out and interpret, and they illustrated the social issues of the day. The public's enthusiastic reception of each new canvas confirmed their close relationship with this new school of painters.
