The work of Victorian painter John Brett is very appealing. . . . Brett long has been in need of the kind of scholarly reassessment presented here. . . . This is an attractive and valuable addition to the literature on 19th-century British art. Highly recommended. -W. S. Rodner, Choice -- W. S. Rodner * W. S. Rodner *
