Book Description
Augustus John (1878-1961) was one of the best-known and most colorful British artists of his generation, while his sister Gwen (1876-1939) led a reclusive life studying under Whistler in Paris.

This book, with more than 100 color illustrations, examines the sibling artists side by side for the first time. AUTHOR BIO: David Fraser Jenkins is a senior curator and Chris Stephens is a curator at Tate.
