The History of British Art offers a thorough overview of the origins, development and impact of art and visual culture in Britain from the seventh century to the twenty-first. In three sumptuously illustrated volumes, available separately or as a three-volume set in a luxurious slipcase, the world's leading experts trace the remarkable story of British art from the Sutton Hoo burial to the present day. Commissioned under the auspices of Tate Britain, the national collection of British art, and the Yale Center for British Art, the premier institution for the study of British art in North America, a team of international scholars has assembled a remarkable resource for specialist and enthusiast alike. Each volume, fully illustrated in colour throughout, comprises substantial surveys of the major subject areas, while focused analysis is given to key themes and artworks, supplemented by timelines, bibliographies and a comprehensive index.
