Synopsis: This monograph is a suberb guide to the work of 'the most inventive of living representational painters'. This groundbreaking book contains a new and wide-ranging interview with the artist, a selection of 60 of Kitaj’s finest paintings, drawings and prints, and previously unpublished documentary images from his personal archive. An invaluable introduction to a major artist.

An exciting new title, forming part of our Contemporary British Artists series.

Ronald Brooks Kitaj was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1932.His early education culminated in a period of travel as a merchant seaman, after which time he served in Europe in the United States Army (1956-58). As a mature student Kitaj enrolled at the Ruskin School of Art, Oxford University, before transferring in 1959 to the Royal College of Art in London. There he assumed the informal leadership of an exceptionally talented group of students which was to become the Pop generation, and included David Hockney, Allen Jones and Patrick Caulfield.

Kitaj's first solo exhibition was in London at Marlborough Fine Art in 1963, the gallery he continues to show with. From student days he made his home in London, until the public fracas surrounding his TateGallery retrospective (1994) and the sudden tragic death of his second wife, the painter Sandra Fisher, persuaded him to abandon England.

In 1997 he moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to live and work. Now known simply as Kitaj, he is an internationally acclaimed artist working at the height of his powers to give visual embodiment to a lifetime's observations and perceptions about the human condition. As the eminent critic John Russell has written in the New York Times, 'Kitaj is by a long way the most inventive of living representational painters'.

The book forms part of a series that presents a critical appraisal of some of the most innovative and controversial contemporary artists in the world. Each volume will contain an art historical appreciation of the artist’s work and a substantial new interview with each artist, focusing on themes such as technique and working practice.

About the Author: Andrew Lambirth reviews art exhibitions and art books for The Royal Academy Magazine, The Spectator, Modern Painters and British newspapers. He has also curated exhibitions for many artists such as Peter Blake and Maggie Hambling.
