English Painting (Temporis)

Ernest Chesneau


The English tuition of portray used to be formally recognised
at the start of the 18th century throughout the paintings of
William Hogarth. It contains works by means of the main famous
English artists, equivalent to Thomas Gainsborough, Joseph
Mallord William Turner, John Constable, Edward Burne-
Jones, and Dante Gabriel Rossetti. This topic is introduced
with a truly distinctive textual content, released in 1882: a French study
of English pictorial paintings. the writer, Ernest Chesneau, was
highly-cultured, an paintings historian and inspector of good Arts.
He explains the beginnings of this college which excels in
portraiture and landscapes, and reminds us of the English
brilliance relating to watercolours, no longer forgetting to include
the paintings of the Pre-Raphaelites.
