British Vision - Observation and Imagination in British Art

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

British Vision - Observation and Imagination in British Art - 1750 - 1950.

From the landscapes of Constable to the imagery of Blake and Bacon, this book, published to accompany a major exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Ghent, is a lavish survey of British art from 1750 to 1950. Spanning two hundred years, British Vision presents some of the most iconic works in British art history from major public and private collections in Europe and the USA.William Hogarth, Thomas Gainsborough, George Stubbs, William Blake, John Constable, Joseph Mallord, William Turner, Dante, Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones, Stanley Spencer, Graham Sutherland, Henry Fuseli, Richard Dadd, Francis Bacon and Lucian Freud are among the many outstanding artists whose work appears on the books pages. Essays by a raft of distinguished art historians focus on the two defining characteristics of British art: observation and imagination. This lavishly illustrated catalogue is a sumptuous record of the most comprehensive exhibition of British art to be staged under one roof in recent years, and represents a unique opportunity to discover the creative forces that shaped British art over two centuries.

Hardback in very good condition. Binding sound and all pages clean and unmarked. The corners of both the front and back covers are ever so slightly creased, as is the dustjacket in the same place. There is very slight bumping at the top and bottom of the spine and the dustjacket is slightly creased here too and also at the bottom of the front cover, otherwise the book looks virtually as new.

THIS IS A PARTICULARLY HEAVY BOOK AND WILL THEREFORE NOT BE SHIPPED OVERSEAS
