Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2000. 180pp looks unused. How 'modern' is the art made in England between 1860 and 1914? England in this period was a highly modernised society, but the art it produced is not 'modernist' in the sense that the word has been used to describe advanced French art of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This book is the first to seek to break the association of 'modern' art in England with French models and to describe anew the relationship between English art, England's artists and their modern culture. Through a series of essays by leading scholars, dealing with such themes as the new professionalism in art, the gendered nature of institutions, the rise of Aestheticism and the fragmentation of the art world, the book brings into focus this crucial and fascinating period by offering a series of openings for a new map of modern art in England. By identifying an array of responses to modern life and experience, the essays inaugurate a revisionist view of the period and reveal that modern English artists and art were profoundly involved with questions about the relationship between artistic tradition and the circumstances and subjects of modern life and modern art .
