Synopsis

This work sets out to dispel the widely held misapprehension that because the visual arts were diffuse and did not form a recognized tradition they were "backward", and collates and investigates hitherto neglected aspects of art in Wales. There is an emphasis on individual artists and patrons, both Welsh and those working in Wales. This work looks at art in Wales from an opposing perspective and locates it in a wider context. Individuals examined in detail include William Burges, David Jones, Eric Gill, Augustus John, J.D. Innes, Howard de Waldon, the Third Marquess of Bute and the Davies sisters.

Eric Rowan is a freelance art historian and lecturer. He was formally a lecturer in fine art at the Liverpool College of Art and then for many years senior lecturer in art history at the South Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education. He has published two Art in Wales volumes (UWP) Carolyn Stewart is also a freelance writer/researcher.
