Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » What makes Scottish art Scottish? What are the threads that bind it into a single tradition? Certain stylistic features, such as the heritage of Celtic design with its emphasis on intricate pattern, recur throughout the centuries, not least in the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Scottish Art Nouveau. But at a deeper level it emerges through themes and ideas, aspects of landscape and history to which Scottish artists have continually returned: the presence of the sea and the Highlands, the hardships of the Scottish people, incidents of Scottish history and portraits of those who have formed Scottish culture - especially in literature and philosophy. A close connection with France has also been surprisingly persistent, from medieval times almost to the present. All these factors have formed the character of Scottish art, but at the same time it is rich in distinctive personalities and individual genius. Murdo Macdonald brings the artists to life within the wider panorama and his book comes opportunely given the recent resurgence of Scottish culture and identity. (Kirkus UK)
