SIGNED by Alan Davie
Alan Davie’s work is included in public and private collections around the world and he has for many years been an influential figure in British art. His considerable international reputation was confirmed when he won the painting prize at the 1963 São Paulo Biennial.
This book was published to coincide with the artist’s 70th birthday and was produced with the complete collaboration of the artist, who designed a cover and endpapers specially for the volume.
In his introduction, Douglas Hall (former director of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art) offers an analysis of the development of Davie’s work, and an additional contribution by Michael Tucker explores the relationship between Alan Davie’s music-making and his painting.
The documentation in this volume is thorough and comprehensive, with biography, bibliography, lists of exhibitions and public collections, and an illustrated catalogue of the artist’s major paintings. Fine copy in acetate cover
