A major study of the Holland Park Circle, this is both a narrative of the lives, works and influence of the artists, architects and their patrons and a perceptive analysis of the subtle relationships between high Victorian taste and mercantile values. This was the period of art as great fashion.

Dakers is professor of cultural history at Central SaiFrom Library Journal :
By the middle of the 19th century, English artists and designers had achieved wealth and status, becoming influential members of society. From about 1850 on, the most prestigious artists--led by George Frederic Leighton--settled in the Holland Park section of London. Their homes were exquisite creations, beautifully furnished, that were open to the public once a year on "show Sunday." (To this day, these miniature palaces remain some of the most expensive homes in London.) Dakers (cultural history, Central St. Martins Coll. of Art and Design) examines the relationships among the artists, their beautiful studio-homes, and their circle of fellow artists and patrons--no longer the aristocracy but rather merchants, bankers, and industrialists who wanted not Old Masters but works by living artists. This is truly a groundbreaking work, carefully written and beautifully produced, about an important group of artists. Recommended for public and academic libraries.
