Grand Illusions by Caroline Cass

Book Description

This immaculately presented volume examines one of the most attractive and exciting forms of interior decoration: mural and 'trompe-l'oeil' painting. The work of more than 40 of the best contemporary artists on both sides of the Atlantic is shown to the full in the magnificent, specially commissioned photography of Tom Leighton. Since the vast majority of these works decorate private houses or buildings, Grand Illusions signifies the first time they have ever been seen by a wider public. The series of murals depicted includes the most exquisite works from throughout the United Kingdom and the United States today, characterized by unique historical significance and artefactual value as well as overwhelming beauty. Grand Illusions is the only current book to feature the foremost murals of the West by contemporary artists in such depth of view and breadth of scope.
