This website is dedicated mainly to 19th century British art, mostly Victorian, including sculpture, painting, illustration, some architecture, mainly to support the decorative sculpture pages, and a bit of pottery and so forth. The most useful part is the list of artists, which leads in to the artists' biographies. Also useful, perhaps, are the pages to see art in London (sketchy) and elsewhere in England (less sketchy).
Below on this page are some links to longer notes on particular areas of interest, to me at least. Here is some background information sweeping up odd snippets elsewhere on these pages, and more on various movements, institutions, etc is available from the pages of individual artists. Pictures are scattered throughout, mostly my own photos or engravings from out of copyright works, and are as clickable thumbnails for speed of use for those with dial up connections.
Recent additions to the site include a page on Piccadilly Circus.
Thoughts/comments/other regarding this site are welcome, though I am unable to write back to everyone. If you do wish to write, please put some sensible title as anything that looks like it might be spam I generally delete without opening. Please also note that this is not a commercial site, and I neither buy nor sell artworks or prints, nor speculate on values of artworks. Just art appreciation. Address below, which you will need to type in if you want to contact me, as I've scanned it in to reduce spam.
Annoyingly, I don't think I can do a webcounter any more with my new service provider - this site was on about 4-6k visitors a month, and was just short of 400k visitors when I changed.
