Synopsis: The Painted World takes the outstanding collections of the V&A as the starting point for an all-inclusive survey of painting from the Middle Ages to the present day, encompassing painted furniture, textiles and ceramics as well as traditional oil on canvas. The history of painting is often reduced to the story of a tiny elite of easel pictures, composed exclusively of old masters and avant-garde works. Many British paintings, watercolours, miniatures, icons and non-European works relate uneasily to this twin canon of old and modern masters. This richly illustrated account seeks to redress the balance by exploring the wider history of painting, and includes a broad range of painted works, from stained glass to items of costume, in addition to numerous oil paintings and watercolours. Mark Evans is Senior Curator of Paintings in the Word & Image department at the V&A. He has written extensively on Medieval and Renaissance painting.
Product Description: The history of Western painting is frequently reduced to canvases created by old masters and avant-garde artists. Three-dimensional objects, miniatures, costumes, or stained-glass works are too often excluded. This lively, richly illustrated volume is an alternative history of painting, expanding its scope from works on paper and canvas to include painted ceramics, textiles, furniture, and more. Drawing on the outstanding collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum to illustrate its wide-ranging compilation of painting types from the Middle Ages to the present day, this innovative, thought-provoking volume will appeal to anyone eager to expand their view of painting and anyone fascinated by the ever-changing world of art.
