This important book is the first to explore the fascination of the Pre-Raphaelite painters with Italy: its landscape, art and culture. Covering the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in the broadest sense, from its foundation in 1848 to the second generation (including Burne-Jones and Crane), it also includes the works of a group of English artists known as the Etruscans, who were followers of the Italian painter Giovanni Costa. Ruskin, whose awareness of Italy was both imaginative and visceral and who made numerous trips to Italy throughout his life, emerges as a key influence on the relationship of the Pre-Raphaelite painters to Italian culture. In addition to his writings, including the monumental Stones of Venice, Ruskin's own drawings provide a personal record of his engagement with the places he visited. Featuring full-colour illustrations of the 138 paintings in the exhibition, including works in private collections not previously reproduced, The Pre-Raphaelites and Italy examines the relationship of the Pre-Raphaelite brothers to Italy and to each other in a fresh and original way and will be essential reading for all students of 19th-century art and culture.

The experience of exiles was fundamental for shaping Italian national identity. Risorgimento in Exile investigates the contribution to Italian nationalism made by the numerous patriots who were forced to live in exile following failed revolutions in the Italian states.
Examining the writings of such exiles, Maurizio Isabella challenges recent historiography regarding the lack of genuine liberal culture in the Risorgimento. He argues that these emigres' involvement in debates with British, continental, and American intellectuals points to the emergence of Liberalism and Romanticism as international ideologies shared by a community of patriots that stretched from Europe to Latin America.
Risorgimento in Exile represents the first effort to place Italian patriotism in a broad international framework, revealing the importance and originality of the Italian contribution to European Anglophilia and Philhellenism, and to transatlantic debates on federalism. In doing so, it demonstrates that the Risorgimento first developed as a variation upon such global trends."

Mediterranean Diasporas - Politics and Ideas in the Long 19th Century (Paperback): Maurizio Isabella, Konstantina Zanou Mediterranean Diasporas - Politics and Ideas in the Long 19th Century (Paperback)
Maurizio Isabella, Konstantina Zanou
R731 Discovery Miles 7 310 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

"Mediterranean Diasporas" looks at the relationship between displacement and circulation of ideas within and from the Mediterranean basin. In bringing together leading historians of ideas and nationalism working on Southern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East and North Africa for the first time, it builds bridges across national historiographies, raises a number of comparative questions and unveils unexplored intellectual connections and ideological formulations.As the book shows, in the so-called age of nationalism, the idea of the nation state was by no means dominant, as displaced intellectuals and migrant communities developed notions of double national affiliations. By adopting the Mediterranean as a framework of analysis, the contributors offer a fresh contribution to the growing field of transnational and global intellectual history, revising the genealogy of 19th-century nationalism, and reveal new perspectives on the intellectual dynamics of the age of revolutions. This book puts the Mediterranean space back into a broader transnational context, and as such will be of interest to anyone studying or researching the region, as well as anyone with an interest in the history of nationalism and the global circulation of ideas.
