Nick Wadley's Guide to British Artists
Nick WadleyISBN: 0764924923;
Book DescriptionHere's a useful guide to classic and contemporary British artists, including expatriates like Whistler and Fuseli. In his usual punderful style, Wadley renders his view of his fellow artists, based on their names or style of art. Turner is of course a wheel; Whistler whistles away as a kettle; Fry gets cooked as two eggs up in a frying pan. Mackintosh models a dashing mac; Heron struts on his birdy legs; Fuseli burns to a crisp. To refresh your memory, the index lists the dates and tells you the particular field of each artist. All a good show in a great little book. Enjoy the tour of this visual museum. 48 pages with 41 full-color drawings. Introduction by author; biography; index of artists. Smythe-sewn casebound book, with jacket. Size: 5 1/8 x 6 3/4".
