The Brontes, living in an isolated village in Yorkshire, wrote some of the most vivid, imaginative, and widely-read novels of the Victorian Age; they also became the subject-matter of romanticized anecdotes and regrettably distorted biographies. The best testimony about what kinds of men and women they really were comes from statements they made themselves; but because their autobiographical commentaries are sparse, the record is usefully supplemented in this anthology by first-hand statements made not only by various inhabitants of Haworth, but by those who met members of the Bronte family in Yorkshire, London, and elsewhere.

Although better known as writers, the Brontës were also accomplished artists. Charlotte and her brother Branwell had hoped to become professional painters; while Emily and Anne shared the family skill for painting and drawing. The Art of the Brontës is the first book to address these aspects fully, reproducing all of the known paintings and drawings, many of them in color, with entries detailing the provenance, location, and character of each. It also contains essays discussing each of the Brontës as artists and relating their literary to their artistic production.
