See below the description from the dustwrapper flap.
Published to accompany an exhibition of 44 paintings at the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin and the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut. All 44 of the paintings in the exhibition are reproduced full-page in colour, and the book contains three essays by experts on the genre (see the contents list below), so that the book represents a valuable monograph on the subject.
Now out of print.
Beware – this is a large and heavy book, as it uses heavyweight glazed paper to better reproduce the art-works, and the book would cost a good deal to send abroad. If you are outside the U.K. and are thinking about buying it, please email us first on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will quote a price for postage.
