This text represents a considered look at Devon's place in 20th- century British art, arguing that, although the county has often been portrayed as the antithesis of an urban, technological modernism, it has in fact embraced modernism in significant areas. By means of five essays and over 100 illustrated examples, the text shows that: artists, architects and designers have chosen to work in the county since 1900; Dartington Hall has become an internationally celebrated centre for creative experimentation; and it is not always accurate to equate modernism with the city and conservatism with the country.
