Synopsis
Recent excitement around art - or indeed as the author says "the visual arts explosion" - in Wales inspired this scholarly yet popular look at three hundred years of creativity. Professor Anthony Jones of the Art Institute of Chicago celebrates the emergence of Welsh art and artists at the centre of cultural significance in Wales and as part of the mainstream in Britain and Europe. This book addresses challenging questions: was our visual art tradition concealed by the more evident literary tradition? And what makes Welsh art Welsh? Examining a variety of artists and media, including Salem, Sutherland, Kevin Sinnot and Shani Rhys James, Professor Jones celebrates art that is redolent of this special place while never constrained by it.
