THE NARRATIVE IMPULSE

in British Art

 

 

I wanted this to be a celebration of the more unusual aspects of British Narrative Art, beyond the usual choices to prove a point. Wherever possible I have included the scholarship that accompanied their appearence on the market.

It parallels an equivalent section devoted to American art
