William Holman Hunt

Painter, painting, paint

Carol Jacobi

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Hunt was the leading Pre-Raphaelite painter and major figure in British art and is a popular gallery fixture
  • The first monograph in 25 years and the only one available in print, it fills a long standing vacuum in both the academic and the enthusiast markets
  • Deals with his writings alongside his painting (including so far unconsidered private diaries and letters) and explores his painting techniques
  • Draws together existing criticism but also dispels major myths and presents a new, dramatic and different persona from traditional accounts
  • Its release coincides with a resurgence of interest in Hunt and anticipates Hunt's first major international exhibition (UK, USA, Canada) in 2008 and the centenary of his death in 2010
