Painting the Town : Scottish Urban History in Art
E Patricia Dennison, Stuart Eydmann, Annie Lyell, Michael Lynch & Simon Stronach
PAINTING THE TOWN, Scottish urban history in art
One of the most underused sources for showing glimpses of Scotland’s towns and townspeople before the invention of photography is art. Painting the Town brings hundreds of paintings, engravings and decorative maps together to show lost buildings, various stages of urban development and both high and low life in Scotland’s towns. Together with expert commentary, they offer a unique insight into the changing lifestyle and townscapes of Scotland.
