Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As I've said in a previous review, Ruth Artmonsky appears to have a natural curiosity for long-overlooked art and artists, and this book sees her continuing along this (sometime lonely) path. The 'Unashamed Artists' featured here are best known to afficianados of poster and other forms of commercial art of the 1930s to '60s, and include the likes of Austin Cooper, Frank Newbould, Gregory Brown, Tom Purvis and (representing the post-war era) Tom Eckersley. As with all of Ruth's books, the design is excellent, with illustrations complimenting the text throughout. From a personal point of view, it would have been nice to have seen more photos of the artists themselves, and here it may have been worth a trawl through 1930s and '40s editions of 'The Artist' magazine, where the likes of Newbould, Purvis and co were featured in the monthly 'Artists of Note' articles, whlist Brown and Cooper wrote articles on poster designing. All in all, this is an excellent book on a neglected subject area.
