In this extensively illustrated biography Jenny Pery traces Hillier’s career from the hedonism of his early years, when he was associated with Surrealism and the international avant-garde, to the asceticism that marked his later life.

Icily elegant and eerily still, Tristram Hillier’s paintings preasent a dreamlike, post-apocalyptic world of deserted seashores strewn with debris, empty streets and country lanes where it is forever winter.

Many of Hillier’s important works are reproduced, revealing him as one of the foremost British painters of his time. Fine as new.
