The introduction to this special issue offers a critical overview of some of the most valuable historical engagements with Brown’s art. It notes how certain Victorian commentators responded to the complexity of Brown’s pictorial compositions and isolates some of their broader cultural and social concerns. It goes on to argue that much contemporary criticism has attacked Brown for failing to hit a target that never aimed at. The introduction concludes with a description of the broader themes in the essays that follow.
