Publisher description: 'In this thrilling journey through the British visual imagination, Andrew Graham-Dixon argues decisively against the preconception that the British are not a visual people. Starting with a revelatory account of the almost unknown masterpieces of the Catholic Middle Ages, Graham-Dixon celebrates the beauty and brilliance of Britain's artistic heritage--from Thomas Gainsborough to Damien Hirst, William Hogarth to David Hockney, John Constable to Henry Moore. Embracing not only painting and sculpture but also history, politics, architecture, and literature, Graham-Dixon writes with one simple aim: "to help myself and others to understand and love British art a little bit more."'

Includes bibliographical references (p. 249-251) and index.
