  • Painting Description

    "The Expulsion of the Danes from Manchester" is a historical painting by the British artist Ford Madox Brown, completed in 1883. The painting is part of a series of murals created for the Manchester Town Hall, which depict significant events in the history of the city. Ford Madox Brown, a prominent figure associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, was commissioned to produce these murals, although he was never formally a member of the group.

    This particular work illustrates a legendary event from Manchester's early history, during which the inhabitants are said to have risen up and expelled a garrison of Danish Vikings. The Danes had been occupying the town, as part of their wider incursions into Anglo-Saxon England, which began in the late 8th century. The scene is set in the year 910, a time when the city, then a small settlement, was known as Mameceaster.

    Brown's painting captures the moment of the Danes' expulsion with dramatic intensity. The composition is bustling with activity, as the figures of the townspeople, led by their leaders, confront the invaders. The artist's attention to detail and his use of vibrant colors are characteristic of his work and contribute to the dynamic quality of the scene. The mural reflects Brown's commitment to historical accuracy, as he conducted extensive research to ensure that the costumes and settings were depicted as faithfully as possible to the period.

    "The Expulsion of the Danes from Manchester" is not only a work of historical representation but also a symbol of civic pride. By choosing this subject, Brown celebrated the spirit of independence and resilience of the people of Manchester. The mural remains on display in the Manchester Town Hall, where it continues to be admired for its artistic merit and its significance to the city's heritage.

    As a piece of public art, the painting plays an important role in the cultural life of Manchester, serving as a reminder of the city's storied past and as an example of the rich tradition of Victorian mural painting. Ford Madox Brown's work on the Manchester Town Hall murals is considered one of his major achievements and "The Expulsion of the Danes from Manchester" stands out as a particularly evocative piece within this body of work.
