Waterstones Says

Tracing a path through Scottish art from the Neolithic to the present day, Goudie’s gorgeous book takes in everything from Celtic metalwork to the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

This is the story of how Scotland has defined itself through its art over the past 5000 years, from the earliest enigmatic Neolithic symbols etched onto the landscape of Kilmartin Glen to Glasgow's fame as a centre of artistic innovation today. Lachlan Goudie brings his perspective and passion as a practising artist and broadcaster to narrate the joys and struggles of artists across the millennia striving to fulfil their vision and the dramatic transformations of Scottish society reflected in their art.

The Story of Scottish Art is beautifully illustrated with the diverse artworks that form Scotland's long tradition of bold creativity: Pictish carved stones and Celtic metalwork, Renaissance palaces and chapels, paintings of Scottish life and landscapes by Horatio McCulloch, David Wilkie and Joan Eardley, designs by master architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and collage and sculpture by Pop Art pioneer Eduardo Paolozzi. Lachlan tells the compelling story of how and why these and many other Scottish masterpieces were created, and the impact they have had on the world.

“Lavish, passionate and eye-opening.”

Think of Scottish Art and you may well think of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Well he’s certainly here – he has a lengthy chapter entitled ‘Immortal Genius’ devoted to him, and rightly so. You may be thinking of more... More

“A beautifully produced art history”

I confess it's an area of art history I knew little about and, as a fan of this format that Thames & Hudson have been using lately (see Andy Friend's superb 'Ravilious & Co' and 'John... More
