Democratising Beauty in Nineteenth-Century Britain: Art and the Politics of Public Life [Book Review]

Gilmore, Dehn

Abstract

Lucy Hartley's densely packed and deeply intelligent Democratising Beauty in Nineteenth-Century Britain: Art and the Politics of Public Life is filled to the brim with moving pieces that are, for the most part, intricately and tightly interlocking. Hartley is interested in what she suggests was the rise of ''a new language for speaking about beauty'' that occurred across the nineteenth century, as linked to ''emerging democratic ideals'' (p. 2).
