Scottish painting might either be followed in detail from George Jamesone till the present day- or, by giving its true interpretation to the phrase school of painting, and beginning with Raeburn, attention might be concentrated on a much shorter period.

A further limitation might be effected by stopping short at a date sufficiently removed from us to be free from the difficulties which attend the consideration of contemporary art.In the main, I have adopted the latter alternative- but a glance has been taken in the preliminary chapters at the forerunners of the school, and, in the last, in a more cursory way, at its later developments. Even thus restricted, the material has been too full for the limits of a volume forming one of a series, to which it must necessarily conform- and various matters, which might very well have found a place in the art annals of the period, have not been entered on.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
