Angels & Urchins. The fancy Picture in 18th century British Art.
The 'fancy picture' was a staple of 18th century British art, although it originated in the Low Countries. This is the first book devoted to fancy pictures and accompanied an exhibition held in Nottingham and London during 1998.
A fascinating view into 18th century art, informative and compelling, Angels & Urchins is a shining example of an art history book.
