Description

Margaret Garlake complicates traditional histories of British landscape art in the post-war period. Drawing together work from painters and photographers – many of them women – Garlake expands the conventional view of the genre to include both rural and urban subjects. In doing so, she brilliantly places the work within the context of physical changes wrought by postwar society, as the British countryside reverted to civilian use, cities were built, and artists adjusted to the landscape as a site of both tradition and modernity. Carefully researched and subtly argued, this book will deepen our understanding of a fascinating period in British art history.
