In Fire: Flashes to Ashes in British Art, authors Rachael Nee RWA, Professor Christiana Payne and Gemma Brace examine the subject of fire in British art over the last four centuries. It explores the social, political, religious, mythological and industrial impact that fire has had on artwork since the 1700s.

The first book to really delve into the subject of fire to this extent; it references a variety of famous artists such as J.M.W. Turner, John Martin and William Blake; each of whom uniquely captures fire in their artwork, through their imaginations and what the element represents to them.

This beautifully illustrated book pays particular attention to the many facets of fire and the associations it has with human emotion, like anger, passion and warmth. As well as the way it has influenced language and also played a pivotal role in advancing humans from the stone age.
