Review:

"The editors have brought together the latest conclusions of prominent specialists of each period to build a fascinating panorama which is more than the sum of its parts and will delight both newcomers to the field and specialists of British art who will appreciate its coherence and thorough enjoyability. A Companion to British Art should feature in all good libraries covering British and art history." ( Cercles, 1 March 2014)

"While aimed at ′tutors and students,′ these often dense essays will appeal most to scholars wishing to explore provocative new approaches to the study of British art.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Upper–division undergraduates and above."  ( Choice, 1 November 2013)

From the Back Cover:

Over the last two decades, British art of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries has been one of the most lively and innovative areas of art–historical study. In response to this surge of interest in the field, this collection of newly commissioned essays by leading scholars provides a comprehensive introduction to British art history, from 1600 to the present.

The book is organized thematically to present in depth the major preoccupations that have emerged from recent scholarship in British Art. These include aesthetics, gender, modernity, nationhood, and nationality, and the institutions of the British art world.

Illustrated throughout and combining original research with a survey of the current state of the field, A Companion to British Art provides a much–needed resource for students, teachers, and researchers alike.
