Paper on Sir Hubert von Herkomer R.A.

29 Nov

I have just submitted an article


Sir Hubert von Herkomer R.A. 1849-1914.

? Time to remember.

to The Journal of Visual Culture.

Herkomer had a fascinating, varied life–literally from rags to riches. He died in 1914 but had fallen from great popularity (probably akin to Watts) from just before WW1 and his star continued to descend thereafter. This was because of his German origins (which he celebrated), his overenthusiastic pleasure in his success, and the fact that his work was a reflection of a society that was destroyed by the war.

I hope the piece is accepted.
