Book Description

6 April 2005 The World's Greatest Art
"Turner, Whistler, Monet" provides a fascinating portrait of three artists who broke away from artistic tradition to embrace an entirely new way of painting. This book uncovers their legacy at its glorious best: the revolutionary depiction of light and shade, and how it was possible to capture the essence of a place on canvas.

More About the Author

Tamsin Pickeral was born in England a frightening amount of years ago. She is the daughter of a veterinary surgeon and an artist/art teacher. Art and animals have remained a defining influence on the author, who specialises in books on both subjects. Alongside her own books she has also been a major contributor to a number of multi-author art reference publications and exhibition catalogues. Her books are published internationally, and have been widely reviewed in leading newspapers and magazines.

Her academic training revolved around the arts, first with a period of time spent studying in Italy, before finishing her degree in history of art and architecture at Reading University.

Having learnt to ride (or at least stay on) at a young age on a belligerent ex-racing donkey, the author later moved on to competitive riding, eventing and showjumping with some success, and horses continue to play an important role in her life.

She wrote her first book (The Encyclopedia of Horses and Ponies, 1999) in the United States where she lived for eight years, much of it spent on a remote cattle ranch. During this period she continued her work with horses as well as being a veterinary nurse, while building her writing career. Following her move back to the UK, the author was able to devote herself full time to her profession.

Tamsin routinely works with contemporary artists including leading figurative painter Chris Gollon, the subject of her book, Chris Gollon: Humanity in Art, published 2010. She has just co-ordinated a number of British artists to exhibit and sell their works at the prestigious Parisian auction house Auction Eve and has recently finished work on American photographer Juliet Harrison's book Equiscape.

Her most recent book is The Majesty of the Horse, written in collaboration with award winning photographer Astrid Harrisson and published in the US in October 2011, due for publication in the UK in April 2012. This book has also just been released in New Zealand and Australia. The book is a major new study of the horse, its cultural relevance and the spread and development of 90 of the most important (and often rarest) breeds.

Currently Tamsin is ghost writing a book for someone else, but Shhhhhhhhhhh, don't tell!

About the Author

Michael Robinson is a freelance lecturer and writer on British art and design history. Originally an art dealer with his own provincial gallery in Sussex, he entered academic life by way of a career change, having gained a first class honours and Masters degree at Kingston University. He is currently working on his doctorate, a study of early modernist period British dealers. He continues to lecture on British and French art of the Modern period.

Tamsin Pickeral has studied Art and History of Art since she was child, and lived for some time in Italy furthering her appreciation of the subject. She has travelled extensively through her life, and has recently returned to the UK after nine years spent living an unusual life on a cattle ranch in the US. She now resides in Norfolk, with her cowboy, where she continues to write about art and horses, two of her favourite topics.
