Excerpt from English Painting From the Seventh Century to the Present Day

This is the first book on English Painting that deals with the whole period from the seventh century to the present day. Something of the relation of English to Continental Art has also been indicated. I have studied at first hand the great majority of the paintings that I have described; and in judging of them my conclusions are my own. In covering so wide a field within the limits of a single volume, it was impossible to describe the work of all painters of merit. I have therefore selected for description whatever interested me most, at the same time aiming at keeping clear the general developments in each period. Landscape, England's greatest contribution to painting, has been given more space than portraiture. Imaginative figure-composition, though it ceased for a long period to exist in England, is one of the oldest as it is one of the newest of English pictorial arts. It has brought forth our most varied powers of invention; and the illustrations here are a reminder that Hogarth and Blake, Stevens and Holman-Hunt, and even Lamb and Spencer are of the same race as the great medi?val illuminators and wall-painters.

I can here only thank in general terms those many friends whose comments, suggestions and corrections have helped me in this book. I desire to express my especial gratitude to Sir Charles Holmes and to Mr. C. H. Collins Baker for much valuable advice, and to Mr. W. G. Constable for guidance in reading, for much detailed constructive criticism and for suggesting at the outset a plan for the order of the chapters, without which I could hardly have attacked so vast a subject.
