William Turnbull (b. 1922), painter and sculptor, stands as one of Britain's most influential artists today. Here, for the first time, an in-depth historical account of his sculpture and a complete catalogue of his sculptural works are presented in one volume. A graduate of sculpture from the Slade School of Art, London, Turnbull felt more akin with the modernist art that thrived in Paris than with the English Neo-Romanticism promoted at the Slade in the late 1940s. Accordingly, he moved to the French capital in 1948, returning to London in 1950; his imagination fired by the work he encountered in Europe. Since his first experiences in Paris, Turnbull has maintained his interest in contemporary trends but has always lent a unique approach to his preoccupation with modernism. This individualism has manifested itself in a wealth of challenging and varied work - including his visionary archetypal 'Masks', 'Heads' and 'Idols' and his 'Totem' sculptures - all of which are recorded in Amanda Davidson's fascinating narrative and thoroughly researched catalogue.
