9780715638644: The Model Wife: The Passionate Lives of Effie Gray, Ruskin and Millais

Effie Gray was at the centre of Victorian England's most scandalous love triangle, involving two giants of the art world. In 1854, refusing to tolerate her increasingly abusive first marriage to John Ruskin, the leading art critic of the time, she requested an annulment. Later she was able to rebuild her self-esteem and reputation and to find happiness with the painter John Everett Millais, Ruskin's acclaimed protege. Suzanne Fagence Cooper has gained exclusive access to Effie's extensive and previously unseen letters and diaries to reveal the reality behind this great Victorian love story. A major critical reassessment of the Victorian art world, the book addresses the careers of Ruskin and Millais from a new angle, with Effie emerging as a key figure in the artistic development of both men. Effie, her sisters and daughters appear in many of Millais' most haunting images, embodying Victorian society's fears about female sexuality and freedom. "The Model Wife" is a compelling portrait of the extraordinary woman behind some of the most beautiful and celebrated pre-Raphaelite paintings.

About the Author:

Suzanne Fagence Cooper spent 12 years as a curator and research fellow, studying the Victorian collections of the V&A Museum. She has written several books and essays on the Pre-Raphaelites and Victorian women. Her knowledge of 19th century art has led her to work as a consultant for BBC TV and radio. She lives in Yorkshire.

Review:

'Meticulously researched and yet touchingly personal... We known so much about Ruskin and Millais - so little about the most influential woman in their lives. Effie's story is emblematic of the struggle of Victorian women' Emma Thompson 'Effie Gray's story is extraordinary and Cooper feasts upon it with appetite...I cannot recommend Fagence Coopers biography of Effie Gray more highly to anyone with a heart, a liking for a goods read and an interest in things Victorian' Henrietta Garnett, Literary Review 'This is an exceptional book about an exceptional trio and the exceptional families that formed them' The Scotsman 'At last Effie Millais has been given her voice and it is marvelous one. Effie emerges as a courageous, intelligent, resourceful, woman who refused to go quietly. In unsettling Victorian society, she left the door ajar for generations of women. Suzanne Fagence Cooper elegantly brings to life the glittering world of Victorian art and the socially complicated one of a woman who wed the two cultural giants of the age and not only survived, but thrived! Effie's story is a haunting one. I couldn't put it down' Linda Lear, author of Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature 'This 19th century artistic love triangle is very readably brought to life...' Metro 'Paints a charming picture of what life must have been like in the middle of the nineteenth century... fascinating' Adam Hart-Davis 'A joy to read... A wonderful, rich book' Emma Thompson 'Truly fascinating' Scottish Sunday Herald

Descrizione libro Gerald Duckworth & Co Ltd, 2010. Hardcover with dust jacket. Condizione libro: BRAND NEW. Effie Gray, a renowned beauty and socialite, was at the centre of Victorian England's most scandalous love triangle, involving two giants of the art world. Married at nineteen to the much older John Ruskin, the leading art critic of the time, she found herself trapped in a loveless and unconsummated union with a husband who was to claim that 'her person was not formed to excite passion'. Then, on a trip to Scotland during which John Everett Millais, Ruskin's acclaimed protégé, was supposed to paint her husband's portrait, she and Millais fell in love. This was to result in public disgrace, but also in a long and happy second marriage. Suzanne Fagence Cooper has gained exclusive access to Effie's extensive and previously unseen letters and diaries to reveal the reality behind this great Victorian love story. A major critical reassessment of the Victorian art world, the book addresses the careers of Ruskin and Millais from a new angle, with Effie emerging as a key figure in the artistic development of both men. Effie, her sisters and daughters appear in many of Millais most haunting images, embodying Victorian society's fears about female sexuality and freedom. 'The Model Wife' is a compelling portrait of the extraordinary woman behind some of the most beautiful and celebrated pre-Raphaelite paintings. 312 pages. Codice libro della libreria 9362
