Summary
  • A remarkably visual writer, Charles Dickens (1812-1870) emerged from a tradition where illustrations formed a significant part of both serial and book publishing. At the centenary of his birth, this book explorers the novelist's artistic opinions and connections. His tastes are manifest in his novels, his magazine "Household Words" and his journalism. Dickens engaged with the art of the Old Masters, commenting forthrightly on the latest changes at the National Gallery, and recording his visits to museums during his tours of Europe. As well as exploring Dickens' own views, the contributors reveal his influence on Victorian artists
