Marking the centenary of Dunbar´s birth, this unique and authoritative biography, the publication of which accompanied by the first retrospective exhibition of her work in 2006, celebrates for the first time the range of her achievement. Sumptuously illustrated, it is an essential and invaluable text for all those interested in twentieth-century British art and culture.
Drawing extensively on interviews with family members, including Evelyn Dunbar´s husband Dr Roger Folley and other key figures not previously identified, and newly located archives and correspondence, the author focusses on Dunbar´s career from illustrator and mural painter, to war artist and teacher at The Ruskin School of Drawing and of Fine Art, Oxford. Each chapter explores a different period in her life, revealing the variety of her work and demonstrating her profound understanding and love of the countryside.
In very good out of print condition.
