This is the first comprehensive monograph on the art of Frank Bowling OBE RA. Born in British Guiana in 1934, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, going on to study at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney and Derek Boshier. By the early 1960s he was recognised as an original force in the vibrant London art scene, with a style that brilliantly combined figurative, symbolic and abstract elements.
Dividing his time between New York and London since the late 1960s, he has developed a unique style in which aspects of American painterly abstraction are assimilated into a treatment of light and space that consciously recollects the great English landscape painters, Gainsborough, Turner and Constable. In a compelling text Mel Gooding establishes Bowling as one of the finest British artists of his generation.
The book is a hardback 160 pages with c110 illustrations and is 29x24cm.
