Five Centuries of British Painting: From Holbein to Hodgkin - World of Art (Paperback)Andrew Wilton (author)
- In stock
The pioneering role of Constable and Turner in the revolutions of the Romantic period is fully explored, and the enigmatic position of artists in Victorian England, when a stiff moral code came into conflict with the uncertainties of the age of Darwin. Consistent undercurrents revealed include Britain's preference for the real world (landscape, portraiture) as against `high' art and abstraction.
Andrew Wilton offers new insights into the great personalities of British painting, and assesses afresh the latest flowering, in which many threads of modern art come together in sometimes startling guises.
