Graham Sutherland

Aug 2005
Paperback

Book Description
This important book revisits a major figure from a now somewhat neglected generation who dominated the British art scene in the 1930s and 1940s. Focusing on the period from the mid 1930s, when Sutherland established his identity as a modern painter to the 1950s, when his influence began to wane, it portrays the types of work that gave rise to a widespread consensus amongst fellow artists and critics that Sutherland was the most exciting and compelling voice in contemporary British painting. Two particular strands of his imagery are discussed: the landscapes of Pembrokeshire and the South of France, before and after the Second World War; and the scenes of devastation produced for the War Artists scheme run by Sutherland’s great friend Kenneth Clark. The dramatic colour and lighting and the metamorphosis of observed...

August 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Both Francis Bacon (1909–1992) and Graham Sutherland (1903–1980) were highly influential modern British artists, yet in temperament they could not have been more different. This book is the first to consider their intriguing artistic dialogue, offering a rich and subtle analysis of their work up to 1950. Martin Hammer’s starting points are the strong stylistic and thematic affinities between Bacon’s and Sutherland’s work and the fascinating series of letters that Bacon wrote to Sutherland (transcribed in an appendix).

Spirit of Place: Nine Neo-Romantic Artists and Their Times
Malcolm Yorke
1860646042
June 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In the 1930s, Paul Nash, Graham Sutherland, and John Piper—three little-known painters in England—began a movement in the world of art whose repercussions we can only now appreciate. The influence of the Neo-Romantics on the world of art is beyond doubt: Francis Bacon, Lucien Freud, David Kossoff, and Frank Auerbach all owe their renown to the great tradition of oil painting nurtured by Nash, Sutherland, and Piper. Malcom Yorke argues that the Neo-Romantics themselves traced their inspiration to the English Romanticism of William Blake and Samuel Palmer.
