Abstract

In this essay I explore the roots of Ford Madox Ford's interest in 'colour words'. Beginning with his creative relationship, through his grandfather Ford Madox Brown, with the work of the Pre-Raphaelite painters, the essay also refers to the influence of Flaubert, Maupassant, Ruskin and Goethe. I trace the development of Ford's intensely visual modernist aesthetic and technique with close reference to the writers and painters that he most admired.
