~This book is an expanded and revised version of my Ph.D. thesis, ‘The German Manner in English Art, 1815–55’ (University of London, 1977). I would like to thank first my two supervisors for that work, Professors L. D. Ettlinger and Michael Kitson. The former stimulated my enthusiasm and gave me the courage to undertake a project which was, in the...

Description: German Romanticism and English Art
~The interest taken by English painters and designers during the early Victorian era in certain aspects of German Romantic art is undoubtedly the most spectacular event in the history of English responses to the pictorial production of that country. While many artists of German origin have, since the time of Dürer and Holbein, been both influential and...

Description: German Romanticism and English Art
~THE MEANS by which the English became aware of contemporary German art are of interest, not simply because they demonstrate the degree to which certain aspects of this art were by the 1840s common knowledge, but also because they show a process of selectivity at work which suggests a directed concern. Indeed one might say that the significant feature was not so much...

NOTHING is more consistent in the attitude towards German art in the nineteenth century than the ascription to it of an overwhelming intellectual bias. Eastlake’s aphoristic statement, ‘The English have the matter and the Germans have...

Description: German Romanticism and English Art
~IT HAS already been mentioned that the interest in contemporary German art was in many ways conditioned by the broader concern for the cultural achievements of modern Germany. In the case of the response to German aesthetics, the correlation was particularly close. There were some enthusiasts of German literature and philosophy, furthermore, who developed a similar...

WHILE THE outline engravings of the Saxon artist Friedrich August Moritz Retzsch are little known today, and even less appreciated, their fame and success in Victorian England was astonishingly great.

Description: German Romanticism and English Art
IT HAS already been seen in the previous chapter how the influence of Retzsch mingled with that of the revivalists in England in the 1840s, so that many of his designs and motifs became recast in a more schematic setting, while the expressive physiognomies of his protagonists became replaced by the graver gestures of...

THE EFFECT of German art in determining new directions in historical painting in this country is perhaps the best-known aspect of the German influence. Certainly in view of the impact it had on determining the course of the Westminster Hall competitions and the subsequent fresco decorations of the Palace of Westminster, it was...

AS WITH most movements, that of Germanic tendencies in English art did not come to a sudden end. Long after it ceased to be a topical issue, its effects lingered on. The generation that grew to artistic maturity in the 1840s was still in...
