Summary

Sometime in the nineteenth century, engagement gave way to detachment. The disorientation and sensual overload of an increasingly empirical, urban, and uncertain world produced in some the casual cut-off, the ironic glance, and in others a withdrawal into fantasy. William Holman Hunt was one of the last to resist these strategies. His engagement with modern conditions resulted in a deeply troubled life and decade-long battles with images of intricate intensity.
