Full Description

Seven hundred miles at sea, Bermuda is a unique island with a complex history and a strong identity. The island’s earliest art forms are architecture and decorative arts, with topographical military drawings and portraiture arriving with itinerant artists. The swift evolution to modern expressions, catalysed by economic forces and the rise of international tourism, saw considerable artistic attention to the landscape. Only later do artists address socio-political issues in their artworks. Published in celebration of the Museum’s 20th anniversary, this lively, beautifully illustrated volume provides an introduction to the Bermuda National Gallery which houses Bermuda’s unique national art collection. Reflecting the island’s mixed heritage of cultures including European, African, and Caribbean influence, the book reflects Bermuda’s art history and the diversity of the island’s fascinating culture. Contents: Bermuda National Gallery: An Introduction; Director’s Note; Curator’s Note: Contextualising Bermuda and the BNG Collections; The Bermuda Collection; The African Collection; The European Collection.
