PAINTING LABOUR IN SCOTLAND AND EUROPE, 1850-1900. John Morrison. Ashgate Publishing, Farnham/Burlington, 2014. British Art: Histories and Interpretations since 1700. 228 pp. with 70 ills. (20 col.). 24 x 16 cm. LC 2013-37804 ISBN 9781472415196 In English.
Publisher's description: Painting Labour in Scotland and Europe, 1850-1900 sets out systematically to discuss the Scottish rural painting in relation to its particular Scottish historical context, both sociological and aesthetic and its English and European counterparts. Alongside canonical Scottish images by major figures such as James Guthrie, the book explores many under researched and unconsidered paintings by nineteenth century Scottish artists, and considers them in relation to major English and Continental Realist and Romantic painters. The juxtaposition of J.F. Millet with W.D. McKay, and Edwin Landseer with George Reid makes for a volume that will appeal both to an academic audience and to one interested in European art history more generally.
