Paperback.  Exhibition catalogue celebrating the work of Thomas Hennell. ‘Thomas Hennell, with typical self-effacement, described himself as an ‘ordinary descriptive draughtsman’. His subjects were equally modest: until his late flowering as a war artist, they consisted almost entirely of the landscapes and rapidly disappearing rural life of his native Kent. So why does this inauspicious-sounding, old-fashioned figure, seemingly at odds with the zeitgeist of his own time and the currents of the modern art world, continue to inspire such interest so long after his death?’  Detailed essay and copious colour illustrations.  Price list loosely inserted.  Condition: Very good.
