Lucian Freud, Hardback (September 2015)
Lucian Freud (1922 - 2011) was one of the most influential artists of his generation. Hailed as the 'greatest living realist painter', Freud's commitment to realism, and particularly to the human figure, was often controversial.
Ben Nicholson, Hardback (April 2015)
Ben Nicholson (1894-1982) was one of the greatest British artists of the twentieth century, first coming to international prominence with his famous 'white reliefs' of the 1930s. A pioneer of abstract art in Britain, he played a significant role in the European avantgarde, forming close links with Picasso, Braque, Arp, Mondrian and others.
