NameBritish Art: Histories and Interpretations since 1700


This book explores the nature of Britain-based artists’ engagement with the transformations of their environment since the early days of the Industrial Revolution.

At a time of pressing ecological concerns, the international group of contributors provide a series of case studies which reconsider the nature-culture divide and aim at identifying the contours of a national narrative which stretches from enclosed lands to rising seas. By adopting a longer historical view, this book hopes to enrich current debates concerning art’s engagement with recording and questioning the impact of human activity on the environment.

The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, contemporary art, environmental humanities, and British studies.
