Art of the Celts From 700 BC to the Celtic Revival

by Lloyd Laing, Jennifer Laing

Part of the World of Art Series

Art of the Celts From 700 BC to the Celtic Revival Synopsis

The entire spectrum of Celtic art, is revealed here - from the rich treasures found throughout Iron Age Europe, through the flowering of metalwork, sculpture and manuscript illumination during the Dark Ages, to the revivals and `druidomania' which carry the story up to the present. There is not one single, unbroken tradition but many diverse strands of development which interweave to create the magnificent works we term `Celtic Art'. Both the language of Celtic art and its virtuosity speak directly to the modern artist and to a wide public.
