This book explores the role of vision and the culture of observation in Victorian and modernist ways of seeing. It charts the characterization of vision through four organizing principles – small, large, past and future – to survey Victorian conceptions of what vision was. It then explores how this Victorian vision influenced twentieth-century ways of seeing, when anxieties over visual ‘truth’ became entwined with modernist rejections of objectivity.
