The British painter Ford Madox Brown looks frowning at us from one of his most famous paintings, with almost pouting lips. "The Last of England" (1852-55) was not only a model for himself, but also his second wife Emma and little daughter Catherine Emily. While the blonde girl peeks out behind the back of a woman and bites into an apple, the wife looks wistfully into the distance. The boat in which she sits rocks on the waves, it rains and it is cold. The white rocks of Dover are slowly disappearing into the distance.

In order to be able to show exactly these facial expressions, Madox Brown let his family sit outdoors in bad weather. So of course he was able to realistically reproduce his wife's painful expression. And the cheerfulness seems to have vanished from the eyes of the painter himself in English rainy weather. The painter had this quest for an almost extremely lifelike and realistic representation in common with the pre-Raphaelite artists who caused a sensation in England in the mid-19th century. This group of artists, whose driving force was the painter and poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti, wanted to remain true to nature in their works, to paint them in all their details. Ford Madox Ford showed this interest early on in a realistic and lifelike representation. Already in the 1840s he studied corpses at University College London to get to know the human body and finally to be able to paint as it really was. Because of his realistic painting style, he is therefore compared to the German painter Adolph Menzel, who is considered the defining artist of realism in the 19th century. Ford Madox Brown created paintings with historical subjects, but also immortalized themes of his time on canvas. Since he was very socially involved himself, he also deals with contemporary social problems and concerns in some of his works.

Ford Madox Brown had a long-standing friendship with Dante Gabriel Rossetti. His eldest daughter, Emma Lucy, from her first marriage, even lived with the Rossetti family for a while and eventually married Dante's brother. However, artistically Ford Madox Brown and Dante Gabriel Rossetti did not always agree. In 1848, Rossetti was a student of Ford Madox Brown for a short time and was taught painting. Ultimately, however, the free-spirited Rossetti could not get used to the old academic teaching methods that Madox Brown represented. As the head of the Pre-Raphaelites, Rossetti rejected precisely this academic painting. Perhaps that was a reason for Ford Madox Brown not to join this group of artists. He wanted to remain independent, not commit to a manifesto and paint what and how he wanted. Madox Brown, however, adopted the use of vividly bright colors from the Pre-Raphaelites. © Meisterdrucke
