Spirit of Place : Artists, Writers and the British Landscape
There’s no question about it, the countryside has changed in many ways in the last hundred years; just as it has over countless centuries past. This book asks how these changes have altered the way we perceive the places around us, and how our experiences may differ from those who came before us through the lens of painters and writers.
Often associated with the 18th-century trend for English landscape painting, creative representation of the British countryside can actually be traced further back to Old English poetry. Spirit of Place takes the reader on a walk through rural Britain through the eyes of great writers and artists.
Looking at the likes of Bede and the Gawain-poet, to Gainsborough, Turner and Constable, Hepworth and Robert Macfarlane, this book is a fascinating journey through time, filled with anecdotes and detailed accounts.
