A new and much updated edition of David Buckman’s dictionary is now in print. As well as extensive updates, there are around 4,500 entirely new biographies and the number of featured artists totals 14,500. Many contemporary artists, including installation and video, are included for the first time. As well as artists born in the United Kingdom, the book contains many from Ireland, continental Europe, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and America who studied and worked for periods or settled in Britain. It is also strong on Polish painters who settled in Britain before and after the Second World War.
The new book totals 1888 pages, in two volumes (volume 1 = 1040pp, volume 2 = 848pp).
