About this title


The history of Western painting is frequently reduced to canvases created by old masters and avant-garde artists. Three-dimensional objects, miniatures, costumes, or stained-glass works are too often excluded. This lively, richly illustrated volume is an alternative history of painting, expanding its scope from works on paper and canvas to include painted ceramics, textiles, furniture, and more. Drawing on the outstanding collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum to illustrate its wide-ranging compilation of painting types from the Middle Ages to the present day, this innovative, thought-provoking volume will appeal to anyone eager to expand their view of painting and anyone fascinated by the ever-changing world of art.

About the Author:

Mark Evans is Senior Curator of Painting in the Word and Image department at the V&A. He has written extensively on medieval and Renaissance painting.
