Out of print for decades, the enchanting classics in this new edition will be welcomed by teachers and students of literature, art history, and aesthetics.

As its title suggests, "imaginary portraits" are not biographies but rather fictionalized accounts of historic figures, written by an esteemed nineteenth-century scholar of Renaissance art and literature. "The Child in the House", out of print since 1904, appears in this treasured new edition along with "Gaston de Latour", an unfinished novel. The common thread of all the material in this collection is its search for a new aesthetic -- a timely theme, given the current reappraisal of the culture of Modernism.
