Seller: joslinhall (7,637) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Northampton, Massachusetts, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 361817655713 “Popular Art, Past & Present” By A.J. Lewery. Published by David & Charles in 1991. description continues below the picture- - - - DISCUSSION: A sweeping, well illustrated survey of English folk and "popular" arts of the 18th-20th centuries. Lots of odd, offbeat, whimsical material! "From the riotous colour of fairgrounds to ornate scrolling on windswept fishing boats, from the naked lady tattooed on a motorcyclist's arm to the pair of china dogs guarding the mantlepiece, popular art is alive and thriving in Britain. This account of what is a largely undocumented aspect of our heritage traces many of its themes back to their roots. Medieval heraldry and heroes still appear on pub signs, and the acanthus leaves of ancient architecture have been transformed into the gilded scrollwork of church banners and gypsy caravans. Even the political murals of Northern Ireland, inner city graffiti and mummer plays are linked to the past by a creative need. The author sets out to provide an informative text with a touch of humour. He also wrote "Signwritten Art" and "Narrow Boat Painting". DESCRIPTION: Hardcover. 11"x10", 152 pages, color and black & white illustrations, dust jacket. CONDITION NOTES: The dust jacket has some light wear and soil (please see the photos, above and below). The book itself has some minor soil, but otherwise is clean and nice, with a tight binding. - - - - - - OVERSEAS BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: Our International shipping charges are based on the weight, when boxed for shipping, of each book -please check the postage chart for the cost of shipping to your country.
