Book Description

13 Jun 2011
This is the first comprehensivemonograph on the art of Frank Bowling OBE RA. Born in British Guiana in 1936, Bowling arrived in England in his late teens, going on to study at the Royal College of Art alongside David Hockney RA and Derek Boshier. By the early 1960s he had established himself as an original force in the vibrant London art scene, with a style that brilliantly combined figurative, symbolic and abstract elements. Dividing his time between New York and London since the late 1960s, he has developed a unique and virtuosic abstract style in which certain formal aspects of American painterly abstraction are assimilated to a treatment of light and space that consciously recollects the great English landscape painters, Gainsborough, Turner and Constable. In a compelling textMel Gooding establishes Bowling as one of the finest British artists of his generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last. 13 Jun 2011
This retrospective of the major talent of the artist Frank Bowling is wonderfully written and accompanied by excellent reproductions of his paintings. It celebrates Frank's passage chronologically from Guyana to London and New York (and back again), through his beautiful works, which throb with vitality and spirit. I hope that it will accompany a full exhibition at a major gallery, which is what an artist of this calibre surely deserves.

Saw Frank Bowling's pictures at the Tate Britain and was really impressed. Bought the book to get a better feel for his work - it does the business. Fantastic pictures of a whole range of his work. Very pleased with this purchase.
