Unlikely to be challenged as the standard work on the subject, British Artists 1880-1940 includes entries for a staggering 41,000 British artists who exhibited at forty-nine of the major exhibition centres and commercial galleries throughout England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland between the years 1880-1940. While there are many books on specific artists, schools and movements, until the publication of this book there has been no basic work of reference covering the vast mass of artists who painted during the period and whose work can be found in most British homes. The arrangement of names is alphabetical, to make it as easy as possible to find the artist; where dates of birth and/or death dates are unknown, the first and last year of exhibiting has been used. The date the artist became a member of a society has been included as well as the address. ' ...a wealth of information that has never been published before... ' - Antique Monthly
