A review of Artwriting, Nation, and Cosmopolitanism in Britain: The ‘Englishness’ of English Art Theory since the Eighteenth Century. Mark A. Cheetham examines three centuries of English artwriting in which he traces an enduring preoccupation with nation, nationalism, and Englishness. Emphasizing the theoretical nature of all artwriting, Cheetham seeks to recover the theoretical underpinnings of an English authorial tradition that frequently defined itself in opposition to Continental aesthetic theory.
