Description
Britain has played a key role in the history of the last five centuries, and its art reflects this in intriguing and complex ways, posits Andrew Wilton, a Keeper and senior research fellow at the Tate Britain museum. In this book, richly illustrated with 183 color and black and white reproductions, he traces the story of British painting from its hesitant beginnings under the influence of 16th-century German artist Hans Holbein the Younger through its maturity in the 18th century with William Hogarth and Joshua Reynolds, reflecting Britain's prosperity and growing imperial influence. Moving on through the Romantic period of John Constable and J.M.W. Turner and the Victorian conflict between morality and scientific advancement, up to the modern day, Wilton finds a consistent preference in Britain for the real world (landscape and portraiture) as opposed to "high art" and abstraction.
