Several hundred Huguenot refugee artists and craftsmen are recorded as working in London before and after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, which marked the height of the persecution of the Protestants in France.
This book is an introduction to the range of their artistic contributions, centred on the British metropolis, and the extents of their artistic influence outside London. Huguenots are associated with the London goldsmiths' and silkweaving trades, but their contribution to art education, decorative painting, engraving, sculpture, wood-work, furniture, upholstery, jewellry and watch-making in this period is less well known.
