Art in Britain 1660–1815

Art in Britain 1660–1815


David H. Solkin's book presents the first social history of British art from the period known as the long 18th century.

Offering a fresh and challenging look at the major developments of the era, it describes how an embryonic London art world metamorphosed into a flourishing community whose efforts led to the rise of a British School worthy of comparison with its European counterparts.

With over 300 artworks accompanied by detailed analysis, this book beautifully illustrates how Britain's transformation into the world's foremost commercial and imperial power found expression in the visual arts and how the arts shaped the nation in return.
