DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION
Published to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the first steam locomotive to run on rails (Richard Trevithick's Penydarren), this handsome and important book is a remarkable collaboration between the National Railway Museum and the Guild of Railway Artists. It reproduces some of the finest work from the NRM's art collection, including paintings by Terence Cuneo, David Shepherd, Cuthbert Hamilton Ellis and the acclaimed poster artist Tom Purvis.
An inspired text by Beverley Cole, Curator of the NRM's Pictorial Collections, reviews railway art over the last two centuries. Her account ranges from the earliest paintings, depicting railways as symbolic of man's depravity, through to contemporary studies of Eurostar and other high-speed trains.
A major part of the book is devoted to depictions by GRA members of locomotives, stock and artefacts in the National Collection, held either by the NRM at York or out-stationed at many locations within Britain. These paintings and sketches have both historic and contemporary settings. They include such famous locomotives as City of Truro, King George V, Duchess of Hamilton and Mallard.
In short, this is a superb record of the railway through the eye of the artist, two hundred years after Trevithick's locomotive made its first faltering journey.
