Product Description

Published in his 90th year, Works on Paper is the definitive study of Anthony Whishaw’s drawings and works on paper. A contemporary of Frank Auerbach, Lucian Freud and Bridget Riley, these rarely seen works reveal one of Britain’s great draughtsmen.

Educated at Chelsea School of Art and The Royal College of Art, the artist has spent a lifetime developing a distinctive vision uncompromised by commercial concerns and undistracted by an ever-changing art world.

Richard Davey’s essays allow those interested in contemporary British art and the practice of drawing to discover an artist who uses mark-making to shift between figuration and abstraction, landscape and interior, and narrative and memory.

‘Anthony Whishaw’s work exudes his deep love of life and curiosity for the world around him. Through his works on paper, this insightful and beautiful book captures the expression of this love in the intimate act of drawing.’
– Rebecca Salter PRA, President of the Royal Academy of Arts, London
