John Rothenstein's Introduction To English Painting has long been recognised as one of the best concise guides to the development of English painting. In this book he combines the authority of his scholarship with rare, discerning enthusiasm (and not a little wit). From medieval wall-paintings and illuminated manuscripts the story of English art unfolds, incorporating Tudor and Stuart portraiture, sporting pictures, landscapes, watercolours and on through the Pre-Raphaelites to the 1950s, dedicating chapters to such influential artists as Hogarth, Blake, Gainsborough, Turner, Whistler and Sickert. This book is essential to any reader wishing to understand and appreciate the varied richness of English art across the centuries.
Sir John Rothenstein was, for 26 years, Director of the Tate Gallery, and the author of many major works.
