Landscape artist Badmin (born in 1906) is famed in England for his watercolors and etchings, but "the recording of the skills and traditions of the British countryside such as thatching is one of Badmin's most important contributions to post-war life," according to Beetles, a London art dealer. Here he has assembled some 44 of the artist's watercolors, with a catalogue raisonne of his etchings. Beetles provides a brief, informative history of Badmin's career and development as a fine artist, and discusses his commercial illustrations for advertising and greeting cards. The collection serves as a virtual travelogue for its home audience, who are invited by Beetles "to look again at the countryside around us" which includes Findon, Clovelly, Ratley and other villages unfamiliar to American readers.
