Harold Gilman + William Ratcliffe

“A clean and solid mosaic of thick paint in a light key” was a phrase aptly used by the leader of the Camden Town Group of artists, Walter Sickert, to describe the painting of this Edwardian group, who depicted their tea-and-cake world in a comparatively timid, but subtle and charming, Post-Impressionist style.

Gabriel Münter: The Search for Expressionism - OUT OF PRINT

This is the first book to consider Lewis’s drawing as a distinct contribution to his art, despite the importance he attributed to draughtsmanship. Lewis wrote that the line in drawing was nothing less than “the bone beneath the pulp”. “It is more difficult upon a piece of white paper ... to deceive the expert spectator than it is with a lot of oil paint upon a canvas.” This book traces his drawing from youthful figure studies and portraits to the surreal abstractions and dreamscapes of his later years.

This catalogue accompanied the first exhibition to bring together the seminal group of paintings of London building sites by Frank Auerbach (born 1931).
