About

This is the first book to cover the entire oeuvre of a painter whose distinctive and powerfully evocative style has earned him widespread critical acclaim and public popularity. Haste draws on original documents, family archives, letters, published interviews with the painters and new interviews with those who knew the artist to explore the relationship of his life to his work.

  • A book signing will follow the talk, with drinks in the gallery.
  • All proceeds will go to the Prospect Hospice Savernake Appeal (see info below)
