The Print in Early Modern England: An Historical Oversight

“The print repertoire of the 16th and 17th centuries in England has been neglected historically, and this remarkable book rectifies a major oversight in the history of English visual art.”

Malcom Jones, senior lecturer at Sheffield University, provides a full survey of single sheet prints from Early Modern England in his new book, appropriately titled The Print in Early Modern England: An Historical Oversight. He tackles the subject chronologically and thematically – touching on Christianity, politics, and “otherness.” He concludes by assessing the importance of this cache of visual culture in the cultural history of England.

A must for any print fan. And, for those with a love for art history.

From YUP.
