This is the first major monograph on the work of William Crozier (1930-2011), who came to prominence in the 1950s through the early success and notoriety of his exhibitions of assemblages and paintings. The book provides a detailed survey of Crozier's wide-ranging work over the last fifty years, placing it within wider European traditions as well as relating it to developments in Irish, Scottish and English art. Crozier is a formidable colourist and the critical texts are accompanied by extensive reproductions of the artist's work in colour. The book will be widely welcomed by collectors and devotees of the artist's work, students of modern art, and art lovers in general.

'A treat for the senses.' The Spectator 'Combining insightful contributions by S B Kennedy, Philip Vann and Katharine Crouan, with an abundance of high quality reproductions, this book is a fascinating read for both admirers of Crozier's work and those interested in the wider history of 20th century Irish and British art.' Irish Arts Review 2007 'The textual references and notes by its editors are very good indeed ... The excellent colour plates, fascinating photographs and overall design and layout enables the reader to consider and fill in details which have been lacking hitherto ... this is a terrific account of a painter's life to date with solid information and opinions'. Irish Arts Review 2007 'the high quality colour reproductions throughout this informatively written publication does full justice to the work of this distinguished artist'. Galleries Magazine 2008 'The literary and biographic details in Vann's account are trumped by Katharine Crouan's incisive and no-nonsense commentary on the paintings ... her writing ... is lucid, crisp and pertinent ... each section is followed by several pages of lavish illustrations [Crouan] also contributes a full chronology, a detailed bibliography and an exhibition list, which rounds off this definitive statement on a good artist.' The Art Book 2008
