Synopsis

In Search of a Masterpiece An Art Lover's Guide to Great Britain and Ireland by Christopher Lloyd

If you find yourself in Hull, Cork or Dundee, what paintings should you go and look at? Many masterpieces are waiting for you around the British Isles, sometimes neglected, in our galleries and museums. Here, broadcaster, critic and President of the National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Societies (NADFAS), Christopher Lloyd, identifies over 265 masterpieces in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales from the National Gallery to The Burrell Collection in Glasgow some acknowledged greats, others surprising, quirky and richly rewarding. All the paintings are the personal selection of Lloyd who has come across and enjoyed or admired them in public collections during the course of his career. His purpose throughout is to encourage others to visit the same places and experience the same pleasures. For tourists, this book offers a treasure trail; for the art lover, a vade mecum and companion in all an expert guide to the highlights of British collections our country's galleries have found their Pevsner.

I love the newsletter with reviews of all the new books coming out. Can't wait to open it when it arrives in my inbox.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
