Overview

London is one of the world’s most popular cities, and its hustle and bustle, changing landscape, and infinite sights have provided a rich subject for many artists. Their representations are fascinatingly diverse. From recognizable views of the River Thames, St. Paul’s, and Tower Bridge to idyllic scenes of London’s residential squares and streets or paintings capturing the architectural feats and engineering marvels of their day, artists have documented a developing London that found wealth and confidence and emerged as the first truly modern city. Drawing from Tate’s superb collection and beyond, this stunning book presents 100 paintings from the 17th century to the present, with each work offering a special perspective contextualized by revealing and memorable anecdotes that bring the images to life.

Featuring some of the world’s most influential artists—Canaletto, Turner, Constable, Pissarro, Monet, Kossoff, and Auerbach—as well as lesser-known contemporary artists such as David Hepher and Lisa Milroy, London in Paint provides a fresh look, through artists’ eyes, at this much-loved global city.
