What’s so great about a Hogarth? Why should we care about a shark in a tank? What does it matter that they are both British artworks? This short but very opinionated guide takes you on a whirlwind tour of 65 iconic artworks, and explains in no uncertain terms why they matter and why British Art is amongst the most exciting in the world. Lucy Davies shares the stories and meaning behind these wonderful works of art with wit and wisdom. This book features faithful colour reproductions in an elegant hardback. The first book in a new series of Opinionated Guides on art movements, mediums and ideas which builds on the success of Hoxton Mini Press Opinionated Guides to London.
