This new monograph on the important and influential 20th-century British artist David Bomberg (1890-1957) accompanies a major new exhibition curated by the authors, due to open at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester.

The monograph is a comprehensive yet succinct account, providing an informed and accessible overview of Bomberg’s career and achievements, combining a biographical narrative with an analytical and
interpretative approach. It discusses and illustrates Bomberg’s five key periods and motifs including early, experimental modernism pre the First World War; War artist’s commissions and immediate postwar works; major Jerusalem landscapes; portraiture, and particularly self-portraiture; and the flowering of his mature landscapes. The book is also notable for its inclusion of new material relating to Bomberg’s Jewish background, and its sumptuous illustrations.
