Scholarly Commentary


According to William Holman Hunt, Ford Madox Brown was greatly influenced by the work of Overbeck, as can be seen in the painting Oure Ladye of Saturday Night . Although DGR considered Overbeck's style to be sterile, Italia and Germania may be compared in terms of sentiment and purity of color to works like DGR's Rachel and Leah .
