About this title:
Synopsis:
This book examines the principal ways by which artists have explored the fascination and meaning of stone. At times a belief in the sacred has informed artists' desire to make art, often making symbols for worship. Today artists are among those inspired to explore form and meaning in ways that invite a contemplative and sometimes explicit spiritual response. Equally, other non-spiritual themes remain common to different cultures, notably those of study or transformation, myth and memory, all fundamental to our sense of ourselves.

Conceived as a companion to the exhibition Art at the Rockface (Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery and the Millennium Galleries, Sheffield, 2006-7) , six thematic chapters echo those of the exhibition.

About the Author:
Andrew Moore is Keeper of Art and Nigel Larkin is Curator (Geology) of the Natural History Department at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery. Specialist contributing authors include Francesca Altman, Curator of Decorative Arts, Norma Watt (British Watercolours) and Giorgia Bottinelli and Nicholas Thornton (Modern and Contemporary Art).
