An Opinionated Guide to British Art

An Opinionated Guide to British Art

By (author) Lucy Davies


Full Description

From illuminated manuscripts to two fried eggs and a kebab (and all the paintings in-between). What’s so great about Hogarth? Why should we care about an unmade bed? And who on earth is Banksy? Well, this book won’t answer all your questions, but it will tell you everything you need to know, and nothing that you don’t. Featuring 50 of the very best and most interesting British artworks from the dawn of history to the present day, alongside color reproductions and pithy explanations of key movements and terms, this guide tells the story of British art as you’ve never heard it before. The first book in a new series of Opinionated Guides on art movements, mediums and ideas which builds on the success of Hoxton Mini Press Opinionated Guides to London.
