Sensations: A New History of British Art
In Sensations: A New History of British Art, Jonathon Jones examines the artistic impulse of empiricism and how close observation of the world around us links works such as Robert Hooke's insect drawings, George Stubbs' studies of horses and Damien Hirst's pickled shark.
Exploring how precision paved the way for realism, impressionism and the birth of modern art, Jones provides new insight into the artwork discussed through the wider context of philosophy, culture and science. Backed up by historical analysis, this fascinating read is supported by beautiful illustrations.
Ranging from 17th-century portraits to the utilitarian street art of the 1900s, each topic is covered through Jones' accessible and eye-opening writing style as the author gives an account of careful observation in art history.
