<em>Artists at Home, </em>decoration 3

This exhibit explores Artists at Home (1884) by F. G. Stephens and J. P. Mayall, a collection of twenty-five plates and accompanying letterpress published in London by Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, and in New York by D. Appleton & Co. The serial publication was issued over six months to some critical acclaim, and even today its images of prominent British painters, sculptors, and engravers ensconced in their own opulent studios give us insight into the social, aesthetic, and economic conditions that prevailed in the Victorian art world.
