This volume – newly available in paperback – is the first comprehensive monograph on the art of Frank Bowling. Born in British Guiana in 1934, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, going on to study at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney and Derek Boshier. Dividing his time between London and New York since the late 1960s, he has developed a unique and virtuosic abstract style in which certain formal aspects of American painterly abstraction are assimilated to a treatment of light and space that recollects the great English landscape painters Gainsborough, Turner and Constable.
