Tom Hammick by Julian Bell Tom Hammick, Hardback (June 2015)

This is the first book to survey the work of painter and printmaker Tom Hammick (b.1963). It sets Hammick's art within the context of contemporary debates about painting while relating it to the two-centuries-old Romantic tradition. Julian Bell explores in depth the artist's techniques, imagery and career to date.

Mirror of the World by Julian Bell Mirror of the World, Paperback (March 2010)

What is art and where did it begin? Why do we make it and why does it change? This book considers such questions. It discusses dancing bronze figures from southern India, Romanesque sculptures, Baroque ceilings and jewel-like Persian manuscripts.

UK Kirkus Review » In his confrontation of the suspicions many feel about art today, painter Bell asks a host of questions - What defines painting? What happened to the idea of representation in 'modern art'? What does painting amount to at the turn of the 21st century? In his attempts to answer these questions, Ball sheds light on influential painters and introduces less fashionable artists, giving an inspired account of artistic thinking and practice. Historical evidence consistently backs up Bell's developing argument and the extensive use of illustrations complements rather than overwhelms his text. An original and delightful book. (Kirkus UK)
