About the Author

Anthea Callen is Professor of Art (Practice-led Research) at the Australian National University School of Art, Canberra, and Professor Emeritus of Visual Culture at the University of Nottingham. She is an internationally renowned specialist on the history of artists' materials and techniques whose publications include The Art of Impressionism: Painting Technique and the Making of Modernity (2000) and Art, Sex and Eugenics: Corpus Delecti (2008, co-edited with Fae Brauer).


"Callen, probably more than anyone else working on nineteenth-century painting today, is able to combine an artist's experience of studio practice with an art historian's rigorous use of documentation. Her work is immensely valuable for its combination of sensitive visual observation and scrupulous attention to details of historical fact... This book is a major accomplishment."--Richard Shiff, University of Texas at Austin
