'I never was a great artist,' reflected Frith, 'but I am a very successful one.' Posterity has rated the painter of Derby Day and The Railway Station higher than he did himself, seeing in his teeming panoramas of Victorian life a social commentary comparable to the novels of his friend Dickens. Drawing on the artist's memoirs, papers and other records, this revealing biography charts his businesslike approach to his career, his friendships with the great figures of the age, and his complicated private life.
