about this item

Over the last two decades, British art of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries has been one of the most lively and innovative areas of art-historical study. In response to this surge of interest in the field, this collection of newly commissioned essays by leading scholars provides a comprehensive introduction to British art history, from 1600 to the present.

The book is organized thematically to present in depth the major preoccupations that have emerged from recent scholarship in British Art. These include aesthetics, gender, modernity, nationhood and nationality, and the institutions of the British art world.

Illustrated throughout and combining original research with a survey of the current state of the field, A Companion to British Art provides a much-needed resource for students, teachers, and researchers alike.
