High Victorian. Style of the somewhat harsh polychrome structures of the Gothic Revival in the 1850s and 1860s when Ruskin held sway as the arbiter of taste. Like High Gothic it is an unsatisfactory term, as it poses the question as to what is ‘Low Victorian’. ‘Mid-Victorian’ would, perhaps, be more useful, but precise dates and description of styles would be more so.
