In fifty years time, wrote Augustus John, I shall be remembered only as the brother of Gwen. Now that Gwen John has been dead for over forty years Augustus’s verdict on his elder sister seems less and less exaggerated. Increasingly her unique vision is seen to place her in a category of her own among the women painters who have lately been resurrected. In modern times few painters of such standing have had to wait so long for a full-length study.  Foreword by John Rothenstein.  Superb biography of one of the greatest British painters of the twentieth century.  Condition: Jacket price-clipped, otherwise very good. Housed in a protective mylar cover.
