Description - Evelyn Dunbar by Sacha Llewellyn
Longlisted for the Berger Art History prize 2016 In January 2013, Dunbar's painting 'Autumn and the Poet' (1960) appeared on the BBC Antiques Roadshow, leading Ro Dunbar, a relative of the artist, to explore the extraordinary hoard of over 500 paintings, drawings and studies hidden in the attic of her Kent home. The unrecorded works were identified with the help of the artist's nephew Christopher Campbell-Howes, who had been tracking contents of the 'lost studio' - dismantled in its entirety after Dunbar's death in 1960 - for over 20 years. The discovery doubled the known body of Dunbar's work overnight. The book highlights a selection of these unrecorded works and examines them in the context of Dunbar's life and work as a whole.
