Ok, he is in the Tate Modern quite often, but that's the first time I heard of him. And his art is so unconventional - in that it was perfectly conventional for the 20s when everyone else was being unconventional.

Meredith Frampton the unknown 12 Feb. 2010
By Ikaikanui - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I cant believe theres so much unknown about this artist however without this book the general public would never know about this interesting visual artist. A realist at a time when being a realist was shunned. Say what you want about how boring his compositions were he was a master. In my humble opinion his technique in realism is as good as Bouguereau.

With most opinions about "ART" being unusual and "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder", Mr. Frampton kept the some of the mastery of the traditional Masters alive in his time so some of those lost techniques would not be lost.

I value this book because as I look for artists with these type of mastery in oils, acrylics, watercolors, gouache, or other traditional mediums (painters) I can see a type of evolution. From the Van Eyck brothers, Da Vinci, Leonardo, Raphael, etc.-

Keep in mind there is not really much in this book about Mr. Frampton's art techniques or his day to day life, upbringing, earlier works, sketches, opinions from other of his peers, and statements from his friends and family. What there is in this book is a glimpse of a true master painter.

For those of you who checked out Mr. Frampton's artwork on the web or lucky to live near the actual paintings so you could see how good this dude was I think after seeing how dedicated to his craft he was you would want to buy this book.
