Chapter 15: The Nineteenth Century

Excerpt:

Since we began our voyagings together among the visionary worlds of the great painters, five hundred and thirty years ago, at the accession of King Richard II., we have journeyed far and wide, trudging from the rock where Cimabue found the boy Giotto drawing his sheep’s likeness. The battleship of Turner has now brought us to the mid-nineteenth century, a time within the memories of living men, and still our journey is not ended.

Here is the painting discussed in this chapter:

Red Ridinghood
Red Ridinghood (by Watts)
