Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.
ISBN: 9781472432988
Release Date: 2015-01-28
Genre: Art

This first in-depth study of 1860s publication The Graphic and Social Realism uses the approach of media archaeology to unearth the modernity of paintings labeled as Social Realist. Korda shows that the paintings engaged with the changing notions of objectivity and immediacy that nineteenth-century new media cultivated. In doing so, this book proposes an alternative trajectory for the development of modernism that allows for a richer understanding of nineteenth-century visual culture.
