ART AND SOCIETY (LUND HUMPHRIES)
Series Note: This series was published by Lund Humphries, of Bradford and London, for the Welsh Arts Council. Some of the volumes were also published in the United States by Boston Book and Art Publisher, Boston, MA.
On the cover of the third volume (Worship), Lund Humphries described the series as follows:
The aim is to show something of the role that art plays in the major concerns of human life. We are used to thinking of art as something rarefied - perhaps even as something distant from everyday existence. But the great majority of works have a far more immediate kind of purpose. This does not mean that they are trivial. Indeed, they represent that part of culture which is most active in the minds and imaginations of ordinary people. The 'Art and Society' series attempts to give an answer to the question 'what use is art?' It does not do this in any theoretical way. Instead, each book illustrates the things that people actually have made and used so that the range of activities is at once obvious.
