This is the first full-scale monograph on British artist John Craxton (1922-2009), a key figure in post-war painting. This book was authorised by John Craxton before his death in 2009 and the author Ian Collins had many conversations with the artist during his final years.
Ian Collins’s engaging text is informed by his many conversations with the artist, who was also a celebrated wit and story-teller, and is supported by more than 200 reproductions of life-affirming paintings and drawings.
This new John Craxton book will be welcomed by art historians, collectors, curators and all those with an interest in the history of modern British art.
