Author: Ross Skinner, Venetia
Price: Not Available
Description: London: The Public Catalogue Foundation, 2010. 30cm., hardcover, 354pp. with numerous color plates. Publisher's summary: Dorset reveals over 2,000 publicly owned oil paintings from collections across the county. The largest single collection is the Russell-Cotes Art Gallery & Museum magnificently housed in a historic building on the cliffs above Bournemouth. Other significant holdings are in Dorchester at the Dorset County Museum and Poole Museum. Smaller collections include Bournemouth University, volunteer-run museums, libraries, council offices, hospitals, police and fire stations, an almshouse and a crematorium. Gathered together in this one volume the wide stylistic range of landscapes, still lifes, seascapes and portraits all share common themes. Dorsetís collection of oil paintings is as discreet, understated yet compelling as the county itself.
