Brilliant Beacons : Portraits of East Anglian Churches
A visual journey through East Anglia’s churches seen through the eyes of engravers, photographers and artists
East Anglia's churches have been celebrated for centuries. From great abbeys to remote country churches and from stark ruins to exquisite interiors, Brilliant Beacons, Portraits of East Anglian Churches, is a celebration of the churches, through artists' eyes including J.S. Cotman, John Piper, Edward Seago, Edward Bawden and Gerard Stamp.
In all the works of over 80 artists are featured in this beautiful book, from
members of the ‘Norwich School’ and Turner along the Suffolk coast to Edward Bawden and Kenneth Rowntree in wartime Essex and John Piper in pursuit of ‘pleasing decay’ everywhere. Ambitious in scope and richly illustrated, Brilliant Beacons is a rare treat.
