What's so great about a Hogarth? Why should we care about a shark in a tank? What does it matter that they are both British artworks? This uncompromisingly pithy book will tell you everything you need to know, and nothing that you don't, about 60 of the very best, most interesting, provocative and iconic British artworks from the dawn of history to the present day. Witty opinion is set alongside faithful colour reproductions in an elegant hardback that will persuade anyone of why British Art is so relevant.
