Full colour publication featuring a comprehensive and informative essay by Professor Christiana Payne, describing how Gardiner set out to visit the coastal lighthouses of Devon, Dorset and Cornwall in the Southwest of England. High quality images of all thirty-six paintings in the exhibition. You can purchase your own copy from our Shop.
‘We have a romantic view of lighthouses, and that stems from being a maritime nation but also stems from the architectural beauty of these fantastic feats of Victorian engineering. They were designed to withstand storms and gigantic waves.’
‘These paintings are the product of a prolonged engagement with lighthouses and their histories, and with some of the most evocative of Britain’s coastal landscapes.’
Christiana Payne, Art Historian.
Included is a DVD of the award winning documentary film ‘Pillars of Light, The Art of Jeremy Gardiner’.
