Uniting previously unpublished photographs with better-known works by the photographer, David Wilkie Wynfield, this book provides an intimate picture of 19th century artistic London. Winfield was a successful painter who exhibited at the Royal Academy, but today is best known for the photographic portraits of his contemporaries such as Millais, Lord Leighton, Holman Hunt, Manet and Burne-Jones. Ground-breaking in their close-up format, soft focus and chiaroscuro effects, which made his portraits remarkable for their immediacy, Wynfield’s photographs were identified by Julia Margaret Cameron, the most acclaimed British photographer of the 19th Century, as the dominant influence on her work.
