Treasures of British Art by Robert Upstone

Book Description

This richly illustrated Tiny Folio(TM) volume surveys British painting, watercolors, and sculpture from the sixteenth century to the present. With masters such as William Blake, William Hogarth, George Stubbs, Thomas Gainsborough, Joseph Mallord William Turner, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, James McNeill Whistler, John Singer Sargent, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon, Lucian Freud, and David Hockney, the Tate Gallery offers work to please every taste. The gallery, which was opened in London in the summer of 1897 by the Prince of Wales, is best known for its modern art collections, but-as this little compendium makes wonderfully clear-it encompasses the full sweep of British art, from ornate aristocratic portraits and vivacious hunting scenes to the Pre-Raphaelites languid femmes fatales.

Sickert in Venice by Robert Upstone Sickert in Venice, Paperback (February 2009)

Sickert was one of the most important British artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Pupil of Whistler, friend of Degas, Renoir and Manet, he introduced Impressionism and Post-Impressionism to a younger generation of British painters. This book brings together some of Sickert's work.
