The Art of the Narrow Boat Painters

  • Author: A J Lewery
  • Binding: Paperback
art-of-the-narrow-boat-painters-the

From the traditional designs of diamonds, hearts, clubs and fancy borders, to the development of the well-known 'roses and castles' theme, the author describes the techniques, and comments on the practice and style of boatyards and painters who have gained recognition within this tradition. Bypassing the romantic conjecture surrounding this subject, he has interviewed and recorded details of the work of the people, crews, builders and painters, to create an accurate and evocative record of a fast-disappearing folk-culture.

This book is the paperback version of Tony Lewery's "standard" work on the subject, Narrow Boat Painting, now out of print.
