London in Paint

£9.99

Product description

London is one of the world s most popular cities, and its hustle and bustle, changing landscape, and infinite sights have provided a rich subject for many artists. Drawing from Tate s superb collection and beyond, this stunning book presents 100 paintings from the 17th century to the present, with each work offering a special perspective contextualised by revealing and memorable anecdotes that bring the images to life.

Featuring some of the world s most influential artists Canaletto, Turner, Constable, Pissarro, Monet, Kossoff, and Auerbach as well as lesser-known contemporary artists such as David Hepher and Lisa Milroy, London in Paint provides a fresh look, through artists eyes, at this much-loved global city.

Their representations are fascinatingly diverse. From recognisable views of the River Thames, St. Paul s, and Tower Bridge to idyllic scenes of London s residential squares and streets or paintings capturing the architectural feats and engineering marvels of their day, artists have documented a developing London that found wealth and confidence and emerged as the first truly modern city.

This book is really splendid. Every page has a selected painting shown in full colour with an accompanying description. It is a pleasure to hold and look through the book. It will be a delight for any lover of art and anyone who lives in or loves London. The book is as new.
