The author discusses the emergence of portraiture among the Tudor gentry, the landscape movement of the eighteenth century, artisan painting and the national movement in art from the end of the nineteenth century. The development of images and image-making is examined in the broader context of the social, economic and political development of a nation. The series deals with the Visual Culture of Wales from the Celtic-Christian era to the late twentieth century.
