This spectacularly illustrated monograph – by one of our most distinguished writers on art – traces the career of an artist who is at the forefront of international abstraction.
John Hoyland emerged as Britain’s leading abstract painter in the 1960s, exhibiting with both the influential Situation group in 1960 and ‘61 and the brilliant young New Generation artists in 1965. In 1967 he was the subject of a major solo show at the Whitechapel Gallery, and two years later represented the UK, with Anthony Caro, at the 1969 São Paulo Biennale. Hoyland was elected to the Royal Academy in 1991.
