Scottish Art Paperback

Scottish Art Paperback


Murdo Macdonald's comprehensive survey of Scottish art attempts to answer the question 'What makes Scottish art Scottish?'

Influences include the heritage of Celtic design, the presence of the landscape, history and hardship, and a close connection with France. All these factors have formed the character of Scottish art, but at the same time it is rich in distinctive personalities and individual genius.

Professor Macdonald brings these men and women vividly to life without losing sight of the wider panorama. His book is particularly opportune at a time when the issue and nature of Scottish identity has come to the foreground.
