Ford Madox Brown & the Victorian Imagination Workshop

Ford Madox Brown & the Victorian Imagination Workshop

Northumbria University, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Friday 9 November 2012
Venue: Squires Building, Rm 210; 12.30 am – 5.15 pm

Is Ford Madox Brown the most misunderstood and under-appreciated of all the great Victorian artists? During the artist’s lifetime his works were defined by critics as chaotic, confusing, disturbing, lacking unity or unsophistication. Ruskin reckoned that Brown’s obsessive vision explained an art that drained life from the things it represented. This ‘traditional’ view dominated until the 1980s when many ‘new’ art historians began to use key works by Brown to address Victorian attitudes to social topics. This workshop brings together fresh research on Brown’s critical aspirations and artistic achievements underpinned by an appreciation for Brown’s romantic critique of academic culture and subscription to a belief in art’s depiction or embodiment of the full richness and particularity of human experience.
