Celtic art

£12.99

Product description

In the decade since it was first published, Celtic Art: From Its Beginnings to the Book of Kells has established itself as the definitive introduction to a vast field of European endeavour. The authors discuss the origin and identity of the Celts and introduce us to the study of their elusive, shape-changing, non-narrative art, investigating its antecedents, its style and motifs, and its relationship to the ancient civilizations of the Mediterranean. Included in this new edition are surveys of recent Europe-wide discoveries, finds which have entailed a shift in the emphasis placed on certain aspects of the development of Celtic art. With a wealth of illustrations (many of which are new to this edition), location maps for each period and an up-to-date bibliography, Celtic Art will remain the standard work in the field for many years to come.
Paperback book, Published by Thames and Hudson, Published 2001. There are slight upturns in the edges of the back pages.
