Description - London`s New Scene - Art and Culture in the 1960s by Lisa Tickner

A groundbreaking and extensively researched account of the 1960s London art scene

In the 1960s, London became a vibrant hub of artistic production. Postwar reconstruction, jet air travel, television arts programs, new color supplements, a generation of young artists, dealers, and curators, the influx of international film companies, the projection of "creative Britain" as a national brand-all nurtured and promoted the emergence of London as "a new capital of art." Extensively illustrated and researched, this book offers an unprecedented, rich account of the social field that constituted the lively London scene of the 1960s. In clear, fluent prose, Tickner presents an innovative sequence of critical case studies, each of which explores a particular institution or event in the cultural life of London between 1962 and 1968. The result is a kaleidoscopic view of an exuberant decade in the history of British art.
