Paperback.  First edition.  Iona was a paradise for painters. Long the subject of prose, this sacred and historic island has also been portrayed by artists for over two centuries – from draughtsmen who came with the early antiquarians through to the twentieth-century seasonal colony who set up their easels each summer. Some achieved international renown while others remain little known. The Iona work of many has never been before reproduced. Here for the first time, the rich visual record of the island’s life and landscape is explored and illustrated.  Condition: Near fine – previous owners printed neat name and address on small label
