Major 20th Century artist, fellow of Royal Academy, contemporary of Freud, Bacon and Auerbach
These journals provide great insight into the mind and art of one of 20th century art's most important figures. Born in Poland, his most famous paintings are of Welsh miners. Workers inspired him and he painted their portraits almost as monuments to work. The journals reveal his artistic heritage, who inspired him, and who did not. A fascinating book for anyone interested in art.
