Artisan Art, Vernacular wall paintings in the Welsh Marches, 1550–1650,Kathryn Davies

Due May 2024

Many ordinary people in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth
centuries had art in their homes – not the high art of easel paintings
but a humbler form of art painted directly onto their walls, telling
us something important about their social and cultural lives.

This wide-ranging and detailed study, the result of many years of
research, looks at what this decoration was, how it was done and
its significance for those commissioning it. An extensive gazetteer
includes photographs of the majority of the paintings.
