John Holmes sets out the history of the campaign to build the Oxford University Museum of Natural History and takes us on a tour of the art in it: inspired by John Ruskin, the architect John Woodward and the Oxford scientists worked with leading Pre-Raphaelite artists on the design and decoration of the Museum.

‘[John Holmes] uncovers, with élan, the history, artistry, and wider significance of this quite extraordinary Gesamtkunstwerk’ Elizabeth Prettejohn, Professor of History of Art, University of York.

John Holmes, Professor of Victorian Literature and Culture at the University of Birmingham, is author of Darwin’s Bards, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the Late Victorian Sonnet Sequence and The Pre-Raphaelites and Science.
