‘Scottish Art and Design’ explores its subject in authoritative, illustrated essays by eleven contributors, all experts in their fields. Among the more important aspects discussed are; Scottish art and design’s earliest origins, from 3000 B.C. to A.D. 1000; the importance of the relationship between art and the Church before the Reformation, particularly the role of the Church as patron; the art of the book, both in fine manuscript illumination and in exquisite hand-tooled bindings; the eighteenth-century interior; industrial design from 1700 to the present day, where Scotland’s contribution, notably in engineering, has been of paramount importance; the interaction of art and literature, especially the role of Sir Walter Scott in establishing a Scottish ideal; the significance of the new artistic directions in Glasgow and Edinburgh at the turn of the century, including Scottish Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movement; and Scottish modernism.
