Kategoria produktu:

Art of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland & the Republic of Ireland in 20th–21st Centuries and Polish–British & Irish Art Relations is the fifth volume of Studies on Modern Art and a first book of this kind in Poland.The volume presents research on British and Irish art conducted mainly by Polish scholars.So far, the research on British art in the 20th century – in comparison to the researchon modern French, German, Russian, Italian and American art – has beentaken up only sporadically. The greatest number of Polish publications have concernedpost-war British art, while there is almost no publication devoted to interwarart. No research on Irish art has been conducted so far. Thus, the studies on modern Irish art seem to be an important novelty. The widest range of previous interests has concerned the art of the Polish emigration circle since World War II. Like Polish artistic colonies in Rome in the 19th century, in Munich in the second half of the 19th century, and in Paris since the late 19th century, the Polish emigration colony in London with numerous organizations, galleries and magazines has drawn attention as an important element of Polish art and Polish artistic tradition. Particular attention should be paid to a group of studies devoted to works by Jewish artists or artists of Jewish origin from Poland.

The volume is divided into Introduction and 6 sections: (1) Polish–British Art Relations before 1945, (2) Contemporary British Art, (3) Polish Émigré Art in Great Britain after 1945, (4) Contemporary Polish–British Art Relations, (5) Irish Art,(6) British Art and the World.Thus, a certain image of British art of the 20th century is outlined, as seen from afar. The book is structured chronologically, with focus on selected issues. Subsequent parts present phenomena of British art, sometimes followed by the account of Polish reactions.
