A new edition of this classic survey which explores the distinctive characteristics of Scottish art over the centuries such as the heritage of Celtic design with its emphasis on intricate pattern; the importance of the landscape, particularly the Highlands and the sea; and a close connection with France. It ranges from Neolithic standing stones through the art of the Picts and Gaels, and the tumultuous centuries of the Reformation, to the great flowering of Scottish art in the Enlightenment. The final chapters focus on art produced since 1900.
