About this title


Popularly associated with the Bloomsbury Group, Duncan Grant also played a leading role in the establishment of modernist art in Britain. As well as easel painting and murals, he did fabric design, theatre and ballet work, illustration and print-making, and commercial interior decoration. Throughout a long life Duncan Grant continued to experiment with and adapt to new styles and techniques, and this book offers an opportunity to grasp the extent of his achievement. It examines the influence that people and places had on him and demonstrates, with more than a hundred illustrations of his work, the range of his talent.

From the Publisher:

When Duncan Grant died in 1978 at the age of 92, he had lived long enough to witness the beginnings of a revival of serious interest in his work. Now, more than two decades later, he is established as one of the most gifted and innovative of 20th- century British artists. The astonishing variety of styles and techniques that make up his oeuvre provide a particularly rich field for critical attention. Throughout his life, Grant adapted to the widest possible range of media, from interior decoration to fabric design, theater work, ceramics, printmaking, murals, and easel painting. This handsomely illustrated volume offers the first opportunity to grasp the overall achievements of Grant’s career in all its richness and diversity.
