Between 1958 and 1961, William Crozier painted a series of daring and original landscapes. He lived in north Essex at the time and found inspiration in that bleak environment, even as he looked inwards to give his paintings existential angst. William Crozier: Nature into Abstraction brings these works together for the first time since the 1960s.
William Crozier: Nature into Abstraction is a fully illustrated catalogue including a poignant introduction by the art critic and writer Thomas Marks. The book shows Crozier to be one of the leading artists in post-war Britain and is published to accompany an exhibition of the same title at The Lightbox, Woking. A prolific artist who produced a dizzying range of styles over short periods of time, William Crozier has yet to receive the recognition his work deserves. This publication offers a detailed look at just three years of the artist’s career, addressing a gap in the existing literature about Crozier.
