Industrial Society by Peter Lord
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first volume in a highly prestigious and pioneering work. The series deals with Welsh visual culture from the Celtic-Christian era to the late twentieth century. The series is sponsored by the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies, the leading institute for research into Welsh and Celtic Studies. The book explores many artistic mediums including film, painting, sculpture, printed images and the crafts are all looked at. Also art patronage and institutional development of the arts in Wales are also topics for discussion. This particular volume begins in the late seventeenth century. It looks at the progression from a preoccupation with landscape and scenic art, to the more politicised art after the process of industrialisation. This a fascinating and very colourful look at Wales and its visual culture.
