  • Vernon Lee’s Composition of ‘The Virgin of the Seven Daggers’: Historic Emotion and the Aesthetic Life

    Barnette, Sarah (2016)
    This article examines Vernon Lee’s personal impressions of the people, landscapes, architecture, and religious art she encountered while travelling in Tangier and Southern Spain in the winter of 1888 and 1889 as recorded in her Commonplace Book iv. In doing so, it contextualizes the composition of Lee’s only supernatural tale set in Spain, ‘The Virgin of the Seven Daggers’, written in the summer of 1889, and in the wake of a painful period for Lee — intimacy with her companion of eight years,...

    The Awakening Conscience: Christian Sentiment, Salvation, and Spectatorship in Mid-Victorian Britain

    Burns, Karen Lisa (2016)
    From the 1830s into the mid-1850s, key Victorian art and texts depicted passionate Christian feeling through the trope of ‘awakening’. Visual and written representations dramatized awakening Christians in fervent states of salvation, conversion, and devotion. Feeling had always been central to Christian belief but in the long nineteenth century faith was newly wedded to sensation. From the 1780s onwards, Christian reformers explored sensory psychologies and environmental settings as methods f...

    Diana or Christ?: Seeing and Feeling Doubt in Late-Victorian Visual Culture

    Nichols, Kate (2016)
    A young woman, a Christian from the third century ce, has a serious decision to make. She stands before a vast crowd at Ephesus, in what is now Turkey. Should she show her allegiance to Diana, the Roman goddess of the hunt, and live, or choose Christ, and be thrown to the lions? Victorian gallery-goers were entranced by this scene, an 1881 painting by the Anglo-Catholic Edwin Long, exhibited in that year at the Royal Academy, and again to widespread acclaim in the Manchester Jubilee Exhibitio...

    Richard Dadd’s Passions and the Treatment of Insanity

    Stock, Karen (2016)
    Richard Dadd, an academically trained young artist who exhibited at the Royal Academy, suddenly descended into madness in 1843 and murdered his father whom he believed to be an impostor. Dadd spent forty-two years in institutions for the criminally insane. During that time he was encouraged by his doctors to paint and continued to produce art work which included a large series, Sketches to Illustrate the Passions (1853–57). This article investigates how Dadd’s Passions both reflect and deviat...

    ‘They cannot choose but look’: Ruskin and Emotional Architecture

    Wheeler, Katherine (2016)
    To mark the death of John Ruskin in 1900, the architect Robert Kerr wrote an article for the Royal Institute of British Architects Journal titled ‘Ruskin and Emotional Architecture’. Kerr, one of the founding members of the Architectural Association, credited Ruskin with creating an awareness of the emotional intensity of the architectural experience. Ruskin was, according to Kerr, ‘an emotional enjoyer of design achieved by others’. While Ruskin’s stance on architecture has been well acknowl...
