The aim of this Pelican Book is to give a survey of British painting and sculpture at mid-century. The text attempts to isolate and account for a specifically British element in the general confusion of styles, and to trace significant movements and groupings. The leading artists of the modern school are dealt with, and their influence on their younger contemporaries is estimated. The seventy plates, six of which are in colour, illustrate the work of as many artists, and these, together with the accompanying biographical notes, make the volume the most convenient and comprehensive guide to the subject yet published.

A special feature has been made of the rise of a native school of Sculpture in Great Britain. Apart from Henry Moore, who has been mainly responsible for this development, the work of a number of younger sculptors is discussed and illustrated.
