Paperback / softback

Description

The Book of the Tree is a celebration of trees in art featuring works by some of the world's leading artists, photographers and illustrators. "The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way." William BlakeFrom stately old oaks to beautiful forests and woods, trees have provided a source of inspiration for artists throughout history. This charming gift book presents a selection of some of the most beautiful artworks inspired by trees.

Interspersed throughout the illustrations are short texts about the artists and their interest in particular trees, from Egon Shiele's delicate watercolours of chestnut trees, to Rousseau's exotic forests, Claire Cansick's vivid woodlands and Hockney's tree-lined groves. The Book of the Tree presents a wonderful collection of arboreal art that revels in the enduring beauty of our trees, woodlands and forests.

It is the perfect gift for art-lovers, tree-lovers and nature-lovers.
