The Golden Dream: A Biography of Thomas Cooper Gotch

Be the first to review this product

This is the first full-length study of a remarkable painter of great vision and far and away the most individualistic of the Newlyn artists. He was a founder member of the New English Art Club, set up to challenge the conservatism of the Royal Academy. He greatly admired James McNeill Whistler, but when divisions occurred in the NEAC, he favoured Newlyn realism to the impressionism of the London-based members. Gotch painted few Newlyn pictures of distinction, and indeed by the mid-1890s he had found his artistic bearings, refining his realism into a form of ‘imaginative symbolism’, painting elaborate, intensely detailed and yet dream-like paintings. His Pre-Raphaelite Alleluia of 1896, acquired for the Tate collection, was typical of his vision of innocent childhood. In the following decades, he painted glowingly textured portraits of children and young women which many consider his finest work.
