From the Publisher:
Post-war public art encompasses a wide range of intriguing, curious and colourful artworks that can be seen in urban and rural locations throughout Britain. From traditional figurative sculptures to the Angel of the North, these works further the aim of 'bringing art to the people', which became popular following the 1951 Festival of Britain. Artworks could be found in the new towns and schools of the 1950s and 1960s, and in redeveloped town centres, where abstract or historical murals were often integrated with new buildings. During the 1980s local authorities and large corporations began to appreciate the value of art in offices and shopping developments, although these works could be controversial. The landmark sculptures of the 1990s and early twenty-first century ensured that public art became a tourist attraction. This illustrated book reveals the history of post-war public art and provides a detailed guide to nearly two hundred of the most interesting and accessible works in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
