ART IN LONDON by Brian Brook


Email this review


A comprehensive handbook that will guide the connoisseur to that out of the way place to find that obscure masterpiece, as well as the layman to the larger collections, this is both concise and clear. Set up by schools, Mr. Brook places the artists within the schools according to importance and representation. There is a complete index of artists, sections on sculpture, small treasures, China, ceramics, glass, stained glass, tapestry, embroidery, textiles, carpets, furniture, musical instruments, and others which even extend to clocks and watches. The Appendix gives times of openings of Museums and gallery, information about gallery collections and transportational facilities. It covers London Churches and Local History Museums. In the art section there are notes on style and a diagnosis of period work. Compact, easily carried, it will carry you... right to the spot.
