In this innovative look at nineteenth-century London, Lynda Nead offers a fresh account of modernity and metropolitan life. Taking a highly interdisciplinary approach, Nead charts the relationship between London’s formation into a modern city in the 1860s and the emergence of new ways of producing and consuming visual culture.

Lynda Nead teaches history of art at Birkbeck College, University of London.
