Abstract :
Studies Ford Madox Brown's Manchester Town Hall mural series as a site of late Victorian contentions about both history and history painting. Argues that the murals incorporated the new historical language of satire, displacement and factual ambiguity. Brown was an avid reader of Carlyle and Macaulay, and Brown employed some of their methodologies, including passages from Carlyle's French Revolution, to satirize offical history. However, Brown's relationship to history painting was not generally satirical. He admired Dyce, Maclise and the German Nazarenes without imitating their idealism. The murals authored and authorized Manchester history. Bakhtin's themes of the carnival, novelization, surprise and the 'word with a loophole' illuminate how the murals forged a new civic history built on collectivity, working-class contributions, and corporate capital. ;
