Samuel Palmer: Vision and Landscape
'a readable summation of almost all Palmer's greatest works, finally collected from around the world' - Antiques Magazine
A comprehensive and richly illustrated survey of Samuel Palmer's beautiful works.
A used copy in very good condition of the exhibition catalogue for a major retrospective of the artist, Samuel Palmer, held in 2005 at the British Museum and the Met Museum.
This book, which accompanied the first major retrospective of Samuel Palmer's work in nearly 80 years, unites 170 of Palmer's finest watercolours, drawings, etchings and oils from public and private collections in the UK, Canada, Australia, the Netherlands and the United States. It highlights the artist's celebrated early work, executed in a visionary style inspired by William Blake, and re-examines Palmer's vibrant middle-period Italian studies and masterful late watercolours and etchings.
The catalogue is richly illustrated and includes essays by William Vaughn, Elizabeth Barker, and Colin Harrison, Curator, Department of Fine Art, Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, with six additional essays contributed by leading scholars.
