This book of collected writings by Patrick George, artist and Professor of Fine Art at the Slade School includes his private thoughts on painting from the landscape, his ideas for teaching the course which he ran for many years at the Slade, why and what to teach and how it related to contemporary art and to the history of art.
It includes extracts from his notebooks – which he used for more than 70 years to record his thoughts on the ‘whole business’ of painting and drawing – and his notes for a lecture given at the Slade on Likeness, articles on his method of working and published essays on drawing and painting written for catalogues.
