Book Description

Oct. 1 2007

British artist Euan Uglow (1932–2000) maintained a lower profile than others of his generation, yet his beautiful, intelligent, humane, and often witty landscapes, still lifes, and figure studies are today gaining the recognition they so clearly deserve. Many critics and admirers now consider Uglow one of Britain’s greatest post-war artists.
 
This is the first book devoted to Uglow and his oeuvre. Richard Kendall’s essay explores Uglow’s fundamental attitudes, beliefs, and processes in the years 1950 to 1970, and Catherine Lampert looks at the content and personal nature of the artist’s paintings over a lifetime, emphasizing his growing attention to color and light. The volume reproduces every known oil painting by Uglow—a total of more than 400 works--some 80 of which are here reproduced for the first time. In addition to a chronology, bibliography, and exhibition history for each work, the catalogue entries provide many other details and illuminating notes, including the artist’s own observations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book April 16 2010
By Tracey
Format:Hardcover
I very recently discovered this artist through the instructor of a figure painting class and I just had to get a book of his paintings asap. What a treat to find this book full of all Uglow's known works from the beginning to the end of his career including photos and descriptions of how he worked. There are a lot of images and the reproductions are quite good. A wonderful book about a great painter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing painter Nov. 28 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is the complete paintings of an amazing artist. The reproductions are quit good, some detailed views are included. The essays are very informative. Many of the paintings are accompanied by statements made by the artist regarding the work. Also included are statements made by many of the models.

This book completely lived up to my expectations - both in its content and image reproduction quality.
I am going to savour each page. There are either too few books on artists like Euan Uglow or too few artists like him!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book Sept. 12 2012
By erin
Format:Hardcover
this was a pricey buy not knowing how the reproductions are. But the book is beautiful. The surfaces of his work are clearly reproduced which, for me, was the reason I bought it. You get a clear understanding of what the writer is referring to when they talk about his work, the subtle shifts of color and tone in delicate and painstakingly developed facets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Artifact June 14 2010
Format:Hardcover
The book itself is handsome, and the colour plates are better than any others I've seen of Uglow's work. The most concise collection of the artist's work I've seen. I treasure the book.
