50 British Artists You Should Know

by Lucinda Hawksley - £14.99  Prestel Publishing (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9783791345383 | ISBN 10: 3791345389

This roll-call of British artists confirms the dominance and excellence of British art across five centuries, from Blake to Banksy, Turner to Tracey Emin.
 
This highly readable and informative collection of the best of British art showcases magnificent portraits by Thomas Gainsborough and Stanley Spencer; landscapes by J. M. W. Turner and David Hockney; satire by William Hogarth and Gilbert & George; sculpture by Henry Moore and Rachel Whiteread; and the latest works by Grayson Perry and Damien Hirst. Each artist is presented in a double-page spread that features a major work, details from the work, a brief biography and fascinating insights into the artist’s life and times.
 
Lucinda Hawksley’s engaging survey compares the skill of the Elizabethan miniaturists and the magnificence of the High Victorians with the grit of post-war British modernists and the best of the Young British Artists, whose fearless approach to controversial themes make them worthy inheritors of the great traditions of British art.
