Scenes and Traces of the English Civil War by Stephen Bann (2020)


The Economist reviewed Scenes and Traces of the English Civil War by art historian Stephen Bann this week. The first paragraphs mention Hubert Le Sueur's equestrian statue of Charles I in Trafalgar Square, of which my article from 2011 remains the most visited on this site.

Bann's book is billed as '... the first attempt to portray the visual legacy of (the ECW) period, as passed down, revisited and periodically reworked over two and a half centuries of subsequent English history.' Definitely one for the reading list. You can read more about it on the Reaktion Books website here.
