Portsmouth Canvas PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Portsmouth Canvas free pdf The excitement of a royal review or the return of a victorious admiral and his fleet, curiosity about the dockyard, a desire to see Nelson's flagship Victory, or more generally an enthusiasm for the picturesque scenery of the Solent and neighbourhood, were some of the reasons that have led artists of all kinds to Portsmouth since the mid-eighteenth century. They have left a mass of pictures, letters and diaries that recall the experience, from Thomas Rowlandson to Philip Wilson Steer. Nor did the town itself fail to provide a livelihood at one time or another for a long line of painters including James Northcote, John Christian, Schetky, George Cole, William Lionel Wyllie and Edward King. In this fascinating and sumptuously illustrated large-format book, Nigel Surry charts Portsmouth's changing face and fortunes through the work of these and a host of other artists. From its growth as a rollicking port to its peak in late-Victorian times when it was proudly described as "the chief naval arsenal in the world" and, from the Edwardian delights of sea-side Southsea, through the devastation of the Second World War to the emergence of the vibrant university city - the life and history of Portsmouth is recorded in colourful celebration.
