An accessible, beautifully designed introduction to Celtic art, written by the world expert, this book offers a carefully chosen sequence of 250 masterpieces ranging from the fifth century BC to the eighth century AD. The great variety and full range of Celtic artistic production is represented – from stone sculptures, terracotta vases and iron swords to amber necklaces, golden torques, bronze fibulas and illuminated manuscripts. Specially commissioned photography and lavish reproductions celebrate and reinforce the delicacy and beauty of Celtic art. This volume spans the entire Celtic world – from Ireland to France, Italy to Hungary, the Czech Republic to Germany and Austria. The result is an authoritative survey of this magnificent period of artistic culture, as well as a rich visual sourcebook for students, arts and crafts lovers.
