ART IN ENGLAND: THE SAXONS TO THE TUDORS, 600-1600. Sara N. James. Oxbow Books, Oxford, 2016. Published in the U.S.A. by Oxbow Books, Philadelphia. 368 pp. with 270 ills. (268 col.). 29 x 22 cm. LC 2016-10231 ISBN 9781785702235 In English.
Publisher's description: Art in England fills a void in the scholarship of both English and medieval art by offering the first single volume overview of artistic movements in Medieval and Early Renaissance England. Grounded in history and using the chronology of the reign of monarchs as a structure, it is contextual and comprehensive, revealing unobserved threads of continuity, patterns of intention and unique qualities that run through English art of the medieval millennium. By placing the English movement in a European context, this book brings to light many ingenious innovations that focused studies tend not to recognize and offers a fresh look at the movement as a whole. The media studied include architecture and related sculpture, both ecclesiastical and secular; tomb monuments; murals, panel paintings, altarpieces, and portraits; manuscript illuminations; textiles; and art by English artists and by foreign artists commissioned by English patrons.
