Instead of presenting the history of British art as a progressive series of art movements, this book and the exhibition it accompanied examine crossovers between artistic styles and some of the less familiar aspects of the art of the period. Drawn from the collections of galleries in the North-West (Oldham, Preston, Bolton and Rochdale), the 133 works include pottery as well as painting and sculpture and offer a fresh perspective on a period when these regional galleries were important patrons of contemporary art.
