The Modern Genius - The History of Painting

£35.00

Product description

A history of painting - The Modern Genius, illustrated with thirty plates in colour. 1911

"In this volume I treat of the Modern movements. With Crome and Constable and Bonington and Turner we enter upon a vast increase of artistic utterance which has affected the whole of painting wrought thereafter. And to attempt to understand Modern Art without Turner is to miss the whole basic intention of the achievement that has being so vital and profound across the face of Europe."


A lovely book in remarkably good condition considering its age. A nice item to own or give as a gift.
