First edition/review copy of Epstein’s colourful autobiography. “Like its author’s life, the book is rich in colour and vitality, far richer than can be indicated in any brief description. Here, at last, is the most criticised artist in the world himself playing the part of critic – critic of his fellow artists, of the sluggishness, the drabness, and conventionality of the modern world. His autobiography is a virile summing up of the attitude, as well as a fascinating picture of the artistic world during the last forty years.” Condition: light toning to front and rear endpapers. Dust-wrapper worn with some loss to to corners and to top edge of rear panel, otherwise very good.
