VG. Forest green cloth, gilt letters on spine, green & color illus. dust jacket, 376 pp., many BW illus. "The tradition of country house and garden view painting, or 'estate portraiture, ' began in the sixteenth century and was based upon Continental precedents. In this comprehensive volume, John Harris presents the first extensive analysis of the subject since the work of the same title by John Steegman and Dorothy Stroud in 1949. He studies from these beginnings the growth of the tradition in Britain and Ireland up until the mid Victorian period, illustrating a remarkable variety of the paintings which he discusses. View painting, by virtue of its subject matter, embraces many other genres; and the author examines the various relationships with landscape and marine painting, human portraiture, sporting pictures and architectural drawing."
