The more men and women became auto/biographical subjects, the more the tendency of the public (and reviewers) to read artistic personalities as key to their work was simultaneously popularised and questioned as a valid tool of criticism. In evaluating the function and economic importance of the biographical genre in the nineteenth century, Codell has argued that the success of artists’ biographies was closely related to the changing material conditions of their works and practices. ‘The rise of British artists’ celebrity’, Codell claims, made evident that ‘British public taste had improved and that artists were Kyriaki Hadjiafxendi and Patricia Zakreski 17 thoroughly socialized, not alienated and suffering in garrets’, and as ‘models of success … and, ultimately, of Britishness’ were ‘all intended for public consumption’ (2–3).
