Abstract:

"This substantial survey discusses state, civic, commercial, church, private, and other murals and includes detailed case analysis of major schemes. Written by the leading authority in Britain on mural painting post 1800, it is a pioneering study and definitive reference book which covers work by over 400 artists and numerous murals never previously documented or illustrated. British murals are set in their historical, cultural, and international contexts and the book also includes a supplementary inventory of representative examples in a wide range of locations." "This important work is indispensable for scholars and students of art, architecture, design, and social, political, cultural, and economic history, as well as for all with an interest in conservation, restoration, local studies, and the national heritage. It will also appeal to the general reader."--Jacket.
