Daphne Todd by Jenny Pery

Book Description

Daphne Todd is one of Britain's foremost figurative painters. Best known for her portraits, her work also covers a wide range of genre, still-life and landscape painting. Always working directly in front of her subject, she misses nothing and is able to incorporate many different moods within one image, exploring the landscape of a face in the same way she examines the face of a landscape. In over two hundred portraits of some of Britain's most eminent men and women, she brings a fresh, contemporary view to an ancient tradition. Through her teaching at Heatherley's Art School and her Presidency of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, Daphne Todd has also been an important force in promoting representational art in Britain. This amply illustrated book explores the art and life of a painter now at the height of her career.

Painter Pilgrim by Jenny Pery Painter Pilgrim, Hardback (April 2008)

Tristram Hilliers paintings present a post-apocalyptic world of deserted seashores strewn with empty streets and country lanes where it is forever winter. This book traces Hilliers career from the hedonism of his early years, when he was associated with Surrealism and the international avantgarde, to the asceticism that marked his later life.
