Product description

This softcover book is in good condition overall. The cover of the book has some wear to the corners and some of the edges.

Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition and are without major issue.

'What is the function of painting in a commercial society? John Barrell discusses how British artists and writers of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, including Sir Joshua Reynolds, William Blake, and James Barry attempted to answer this question. His provocative and illuminating book offers a new perspective on both art criticism and eighteenth-century British culture.'
