  • The Cult of Beauty The Aesthetic Movement 1860 1900 focuses on a period in the nineteenth century when a group of artists, architects and designers round themselves united in the search for a new Beauty The Aesthetic Movement, as it came to be known, sought nothing less than the creation of a new kind of art, an art freed from outworn establishment ideas and Victorian notions of morality This was to be Art for Art s sake art that did not tell stories or make moral points, art that dared simply to offer visual delight and hint at sensuous pleasure This new and exciting Cult of Beauty united, for a while at least, romantic bohemians such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, William Morris and Edward Burne Jones, along with maverick figures such James McNeill Whistler and painters of grand classical subjects who belonged to the circle of Frederic Leighton The Cult of Beauty brings together the finest pictures, furniture and decorative arts of this extraordinary era, setting them in the context of this glittering cast of characters The book also reveals how artists houses, their collections of beautiful things and their extravagant lifestyles became the object of public fascination The influence of the Palaces of Art created by Rossetti and Morris, Lord Leighton and others led to a widespread revolution in architecture and interior decoration Oscar Wilde made his name promoting the idea of The House Beautiful and the styles favoured by Aesthetic designers were among the very first to be widely exploited commercially in Britain The Cult of Beauty will examine the Aesthetic Movement through the work and ideas of its key figures who devoted their lives to the pursuit of Beauty, charting the development of this daring experiment in art and lifestyle from the romantic bohemianism of the 1860s to its final, fascinating Decadent phase in the last decade of Queen Victoria s reign.

    2. To say that this book itself is beautiful would be very true, but would not do it justice: this is an important, provocative and inspiring book on what has been called `Aestheticism', a peculiarly British movement that gave us what one of the editors (Orr) considers "some of the most sophisticated and sensuously beautiful artworks of the Western tradition." If you read the book, you will find it hard to disagree with this statement. So, what happened in the middle of the 19th century to make the [...]
