Bermuda in Painted Representation

A survey of how (and by whom) the island has been depicted in art

ByJonathan Land Evans

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
BERMUDA IN PAINTED REPRESENTATION provides an extensive survey of how (and by whom) the beautiful Atlantic island of Bermuda has been depicted in art, from the earliest days of English settlement until around the end of the 20th Century. This new Text-Only 2022 Preview Edition is revised, enlarged, newly-indexed by artist, and generally improved since the publication of the previous (2020) edition. It should be of tremendous value to anyone either looking for information on particular artists and their Bermuda work, or seeking a detailed and authoritative art history of the island – not least for that period of the early 20th Century when Bermuda may be said to have been an American artists’ colony as well as an increasingly-flourishing high-class resort. This updated and consolidated single-volume edition of a work whose three underlying volumes (The Garrison Era, The Cosmopolitan Era and The Bermudian Era) were initially published in 2011, 2011 and 2016 respectively, not only tells the chronological story of Bermuda’s art history but, in doing so, provides as-near-comprehensive-as-possible a round-up of the huge number of artists who have known Bermuda’s charms. Those artists range from very famous painters like Winslow Homer and Georgia O’Keeffe, through numerous merely well-regarded ‘listed’ artists, to all manner of amateur or other little-known practitioners; Bermudian artists as well as foreign ones. Although this text-only Preview Edition does not include any text-illustrations (the illustrated trilogy will hopefully ensue in due course), a great many individual artworks are discussed in the text, and many others are mentioned along the way, together with their location details where appropriate; whilst additionally the text is extensively footnoted; altogether making this book an invaluable resource for researchers, collectors, curators and Bermuda art-lovers, as well as having some appeal to a broader cohort of less-focused devotees of Bermuda – a very distinctive island that has long intrigued and delighted the wider world.
