Kurt Jackson is acclaimed as one of Britain’s finest watercolourists. His paintings of the Cornish landscape evoke the infinite variety of light, shade and colour of this beautiful county. Building on the great tradition of plein air painting, his work uses mixed media and imaginative new techniques to capture the textures and atmospheres of the landscape. Whether painting the coastal valleys of Penwith, the unspoilt Isles of Scilly or the play of brilliant sunlight on the sea, Jackson’s work tempers the romanticism of his subject with a keen awareness of the environmental pressures on the modern landscape. His paintings of South Crofty miners and Penryn quarrymen also record the struggle for survival and dignity of traditional working communities. Paintings of Cornwall & The Scillies gathers together for the first time nearly 100 colour reproductions of Kurt Jackson’s finest paintings of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. In an extensive interview the artist talks frankly about his life and work, the rigours of plein air painting and his remarkable watercolour technique. Condition: light wear to covers and some light creasing to its corner tips, otherwise very good.
