    The history of art is generally seen as a majestic procession from the Old Masters to the Modernists, each work stamped with the authority of its creator. This refreshing book argues for a wider interpretation embracing genre studies, miniatures, icons, and painting on ceramics, furniture and textiles. Richly illustrated from the collections of the V&A, it reveals a vibrant and varied alternative canon in which famous painters such as Durer, Canaletto and Constable take their place beside lesser-known and anonymous artists.
