Water Marks is a dazzling study of painters, sculptors, carvers, designers, decorators, photographers, print-makers, illustrators and cartoonists from the 19th century to date who have been moved by the atmosphere of East Anglia.  Presented with a mass of revelatory research, this surprising and highly entertaining survey ranges from Faberge craftsmen depicting a royal menagerie at Sandringham to Orlando the marmalade cat holidaying in Aldeburgh, and from Francis Bacon and the last Bohemians to a succession of visionaries including Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Ivon Hitchens and Mary Newcomb. Scores of stories and hundreds of images combine in a very singular portrait of a painterly paradise on England’s eastern edge.  Hardback in original pictorial dust-wrapper.  Blue Cloth.  No inscriptions, underlining or highlighting.  Binding strong and tight.  Some slight shelf-wear to dust-wrapper otherwise a near fine copy.
