A considered look at Devon's place within 20th century British art.

This volume accepts that in the twentieth century imagination, Devon has often been portrayed as the antithesis of an urban, technological modernism - a place of nostalgic retreat from change and uncertainty - yet argues that it has not been isolated from modernism. Through five extensive and thoroughly researched essays and over 100 illustrated examples, this book rectifies some of these misconceptions and brings attention to the breadth of modernist work inspired by Devon.
