Peter Lord – Looking Out: Welsh Painting

Through his earlier writing, Peter Lord has contributed to the establishment of an historical tradition of Welsh painting. But because it does not feature in the wider story of western art history as presently told, the work revealed continues to be perceived as marginal, existing in isolation from ideas and movements in other countries.

These essays break new ground by discussing the concerns of Welsh painters not only in domestic terms but also in the context of the ways in which artists in other parts of Europe and in the United States reacted to the common underlying causes of those concerns. The author challenges the idea that the work of Welsh painters is relevant only to the evolution of their own communities and, through confident and detailed analysis, validates their pictures also in terms of the arts of other western cultures.
