Glyn Philpot: Flesh and Spirit
The first colour monograph on the artist Glyn Philpot – a key figure in Modern British art, explores the artist’s work spanning the Arts and Crafts illustration, Edwardian “Swagger” portraiture, Symbolism, and Art Deco Modernism.
Written by director and curator Simon Martin with an introduction by Booker prize winning author, Alan Hollinghurst, the book draws on new research, recently rediscovered paintings and archive material. It looks at his career from early works comprising more traditional formal portraiture through to modernism in the 1920s and 30s.
Hockney to Himid: 60 Years of British Printmaking Catalogue
Accompanying the exhibition Hockney to Himid: 60 Years of British Printmaking, this book celebrates the extraordinary upsurge of printmaking in Britain from the 1960s to now.
With beautiful prints on almost every page, it showcases a wide range of artists, styles and techniques, charts how Britain emerged from the post-war years, thrived in the early 1960s, navigated the social changes of the 1970s and 1980s, and saw the ascendency of contemporary British art from the 1990s to the present day.
