NARROW BOAT PAINTERS, THE ART OF NARROW BOAT PAINTERS, THE ART OF
Ref W080

For the last two centuries narrowboat artists have established their own unique traditions of design and style. In this book, expert A.J. Lewery explores the heritage, techniques and practices that define the culture of canal art. From the traditional designs of diamonds, hearts, clubs and fancy borders, to the development of the well-known 'Roses and Castles' theme, the author describes the techniques, and comments on the practice and style of boat yards and painters who have gained recognition within this tradition. Bypassing the romantic conjecture surrounding this subject, he has interviewed and recorded details of the work of the people, crews, builders and painters, to create an accurate and evocative record of a fast disappearing folk culture.
