Not shy of confrontation, Hambling’s arresting work has often caused controversy; A Conversation with Oscar Wilde unveiled in 1998, Scallop, her sculpture in Aldeburgh celebrating Benjamin Britten, and most recently her Portrait of Michael Jackson refused by the Royal Academy. All have been hotly debated in the media. Alongside reproductions of 200 of her paintings, drawings and sculptures, is her frank and at times deeply moving commentary on her life and work. Beyond the performance and clowning, we discover an artist whose humanity is the vital element in her work.
Near fine copy of the most comprehensive survey yet on Hambling. In clean dust-jacket.
