Description: Victorian Sculpture
In this first comprehensive survey of a previously neglected field, Read presents a wide-ranging account of the British sculpture of the nineteenth century, placing it in the context of the lives and working conditions of the sculptors themselves. In the process, he illuminates an astonishingly diverse selection of sculpture, from well-known monuments to works that have long been virtually forgotten.
