A Luminous Land: Artists Discover Greece Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The attraction that Greece exerts on travellers has been amply recorded through the ages by artists. Compiled from private and public collections from around the world, the art reproduced in this book represents a lovely guide to this luminous land. Artists include Nicholas Revett, Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Carl Rottmann, James Skene, Edward Dodwell, Vicenzo Coronelli, Quatremere de Quincy, Edward Lear, and Vasilii Grigorovich-Barskii. A number of the selections relate to the events surrounding the War of Independence, and particular emphasis is given to the German painters of the 1830s and their pupils, who are comparatively little known in the English-speaking world.

Book News Annotation:

A number of the selections relate to the historic events surrounding the War of Independence. 9.5x11").
