Portraits, Painters, and Publics in Provincial England 1540—1640

Robert Tittler

  • The first comprehensive study of post-Reformation provincial English Portraiture
  • The first extended examination of native English 'vernacular' portraiture in this era
  • Examines the working life of native-English painters so allows the reader to understand painters not just as 'artists', but also as working craftsmen
  • Examines the relations between portraiture and heraldry, painters and heralds; demonstrates the close collaboration between the two forms of expression, both of which were more closely linked in England than elsewhere
